WORD IS SPREADING: There Is A Correlation Between Your Grip And Your Blood Pressure

Just when we thought that we’re back on the road to recovery , we get hit by news about new clusters forming. This surely does not bode well for our health and safety let alone our blood pressure. 

Speaking of blood pressure, I believe it’s high time we take control of what’s within our grasp. Besides reducing my sodium intake and exercising more frequently, I was introduced to a simple yet effective way to keep my blood pressure in check. Based on measured data from the 2017–18 Australian Bureau of Statistics National Health Survey, about 1 in 3 people aged 18 and over (34%) have high blood pressure.

Now there’s a natural, non-invasive, easy-to-use way for those dealing with hypertension. No pills or tricks – just clinically proven science¹ that stimulates the body’s natural process.

GET BETTER AT HOME WITH ISOMETRIC EXERCISES

What are isometric exercises you may ask? It involves “holding a static position, where the joint and the muscle do not change,” says Bree Branker, NASM-certified fitness trainer. And it’s used for both strength training and stabilization (which can help reduce your risk of getting injuries, Branker points out). Isometric exercises are also great to help get strong if you’re already dealing with an injury, since they don’t add stress on your joints.

We know that blood pressure stabilization involves diet, exercise, stress reduction and even supplements are key to control but there’s an easy to use device which involves a natural tool which could help millions of Australians – this is a functional alternative at it’s best

We can be grateful that at Senior Choices Online, we’ve scoured the internet for simple alternatives that not only empowers seniors to take charge of their health but also ensure they can do so affordably without breaking the bank.

Introducing the Isometric Exercise Protocol

What is it?

In the mid-1970s, the U.S. Air Force had commissioned Dr. Ronald Wiley, an expert in heart and lung physiology, to find a way to keep fighter pilots from losing consciousness when flying the F-16 fighter jet. This jet could accelerate so fast that the G-forces it generated made it difficult for the pilot’s heart to pump blood to the brain, causing vision problems, trouble thinking, and blackouts.

One of Wiley’s strategies was a hand grip that pilots could squeeze to boost their blood pressure enough to maintain circulation to the brain. As he worked with pilots, he was struck by a contradiction ” Those who practiced isometric hand grip exercises for a few weeks lowered their resting blood pressure.

Although this initially makes blood pressure rise, because the heart is pumping harder to keep the muscles fed with a good blood supply, in the long-term it has been observed to make it fall.

Over the next two decades, in university research laboratories, Dr. Wiley evaluated a variety of isometric handgrip exercise protocols to determine the optimum exercise therapy to safely and effectively lower blood pressure.  Then a number of closely controlled studies were conducted by physicians in private practice and in cardiac rehabilitation centers in the U.S. and Canada. All of these studies validated his findings. The Isometric Exercise Protocols are typically used 12 minutes daily at least three days a week and produce results over a 4-to-6-week period. Long-term tests by physicians with medical practices confirmed that continued use of controlled handgrip exercise sustains blood pressure at the lower levels (see studies referenced below)

Introducing the Gripometer

How To Use The Gripometer for Isometric Training:

When using this device, you may think that the sole purpose is to increase your grip strength but actually that is not the case. The first step is identifying your maximum grip strength on both hands. Thereafter, what you’re meant to do is grip this tool at a percentage (30%) lower than your maximum grip strength for a total of 2 minutes on each hand – this is what we call an isometric hold. 

Note : it is important to closely monitor the digital readings of the Gripometer to ensure you are gripping at 30% of your maximum grip. E.g. If your maximum grip strength is 40kg ; you should be aiming to maintain your grip at 12kg for a period of 2 minutes (remember to relax and not fret if you can’t hold for 2 minutes on your first try) 

Whether you are dealing with hypertension or you’re just looking for a way to switch up your workout routine, isometric exercise training is a great fit for your fitness and health needs.  Of course, individuals with hypertension or other health concerns should consult a physician prior to beginning any exercise regimen.

But according to Professor Neil Smart from University of New England in NSW,

“…many people can’t get past the fact that you can sit on the couch, watching TV, do these exercises without raising a sweat and produce such a profound effect,

“…In the quest to motivate hypertension sufferers to stick to healthy exercise regimes, more convenient and inexpensive isometric exercises could become an important tool”

Most tools out there today can range anywhere between $300 to well over a $1000+

Why else would I measure my grip strength at home?

Think how much you rely on a strong grip every day. It helps you open cans, grip a golf club, hold a steering wheel, brush your teeth, and pick up your grandchild. “The ability to stay active and independent often begins with our hands,” says Maria Cole, a physical therapist with Harvard-affiliated Spaulding Outpatient Center. “Weak grip strength can limit your enjoyment of many life pleasures, so you need to ensure your hand and grip strength always are up to the task.”

For most, grip strength begins to decline around age 55. The change may be associated with sarcopenia—the natural age-related decline in muscle mass. “When you lose strength in your upper and lower body, odds are your grip strength will suffer too,” says Cole. In addition to normal aging, possible causes include diseases like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis and medical conditions such as nerve damage or tendinitis in the hands or wrists.

A weak grip may be a reflection of other aspects of your health, too, such as your potential risk of a heart attack or stroke. A study published July 18, 2015, in The Lancet followed almost 140,000 adults ages 35 to 70. The findings showed that a 5-kilogram (kg) decline in grip strength was associated with a 17% increased risk of dying from a heart attack, and a 7% and 9% chance of having a heart attack or stroke, respectively, over a four-year period. The link? The researchers speculated that a stronger grip indicated more muscle mass, which in turn results from increased activity and overall health. And healthier people in general have lower risks for heart disease and stroke.

Do you know how strong your grip is?
