Tennis Balls and High Blood Pressure

This blog hasnt re-invented itself, but, here is a health tip.

Recently listened to a podcast, where they analysed the blood pressure of ultra-fit fighter pilots.

Some had high blood pressure, some low. It seemed random, but, u would have thought, they would all have been low.

After comparison of the habits of both sets .. it was found, those pilots that gripped the joy-stick firmly, all had lower pressure.

To try and improve the blood pressure of the other group, simple exercises were created.

Get 2 tennis balls, hold one in each hand, firmly for 6 secs, then relax and repeat for 3 times. This was done for 6 sets .. so, the exercise takes maybe 5 mins max ..

After 2 weeks, all the pilots had dramatically improved blood pressure.

Try it .. whats to lose ?
