Hypertension is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular morbidity and morbidity since high blood pressure can cause damage to microvascular and macrovascular organs. The Sixty non-smoker participants were divided into two main groups. Thirty participants group with high-intensity aerobic exercise and second thirty group with moderate-intensity aerobic exercise. The electrical treadmill exercise uses in three times per week for eight for each 25-30 minutes. Peripheral arterial blood pressure measurements and blood investigation in form serum uric acid, and renal function test were tested for each of participant. The resulted data showed that a significant decreased effect on both serum uric acid and renal function test in high-intensity interval and continuous moderate exercise with more improvement with continuous moderate exercise 16% in serum uric acid and 27.5 % in creatinine.  In conclusion, moderate continuous exercise reduces serum uric acid and creatinine better than high-intensity interval exercise. Both have the same effect on blood pressure and urea, but moderate continuous exercise has a crystal-clear effect that cannot be denied.
