Exercise reduces BP: Exercise tends to reduce blood pressure, especially aerobic exercise. If you have high or borderline high blood pressure, then doing aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week should lower BP by 5 mmhg. If you do more, or more intensive, exercise, the b reduction will be larger. Good luck!
