Abstract: Hypertension is present in this century in epidemic proportions in adults of industrialized societies and is associated with a markedly increased risk of developing numerous cardiovascular conditions. There is a continuing debate about the efficacy of aggressive, pharmacological therapy in in-dividuals with mild to moderate hypertension. This fact has led studies for adjusting nonpharmacological therapies, such as aerobics physical exercise. Many evidences indicates that this exercise type decreases the high risk for developing hypertension, that occurs with time, as well as elicits a 10 mmHg average reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in individuals with mild essential hypertension (bloodpressure 140-180/90105mmHg); it can help too in the prevention and control of others risk factors for cardiovascular disease in individuals with hypertension and makes important reduction in levels of persons with secondary hypertension due to renal dysfunction. For all these things occurring efficiently, physical exercise prescription has to consider the type (large muscles groups activities), duration (20-60 minutes), frequency (3-5 days per week) and lower intensities (40%-70% VO 2max or of heart rate reserve) of exercise, with measuring of blood pressure and heart rate in determined times during specifics sessions.
