The number of deaths due to hypertension as primary cause was estimated to be over 7 million in 2002, approximately 13% of all reported deaths.

Objective: To systematically review and report the articles from India in aerobic and resistance exercise on blood pressure. Methodology: Study was done on February 2016 in Google Scholar using search terms 'Aerobic' AND 'Resistance' AND 'Blood pressure' AND 'India'. 4 articles were identified for this review based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Results: Studies were at least 6 weeks duration with 60-85% HRmax of intensity for 30-40 min duration. Total of 130 subjects participated with median of 10 subjects. The results suggest that there was mean reduction of -5.02 mmHg in SBP and -3.142 mmHg in DBP in aerobic training group and also there was reduction of -3.015 mmHg in SBP and -1.415 mmHg in DBP in resistance training group.
