Effect of six weeks yoga training on weight loss following step test, respiratory pressures, handgrip strength and handgrip endurance in young healthy subjects.
The present study was designed to test whether yoga training of six weeks duration modulates sweating response to dynamic exercise and improves respiratory pressures, handgrip strength and handgripExpand

Correlation between body mass index and blood pressure indices, handgrip strength and handgrip endurance in underweight, normal weight and overweight adolescents.
In the present study, we investigated the correlation between body mass index (BMI), blood pressure (BP) indices and indices of physical fitness in apparently healthy subjects aged 14-18 years. WeExpand

  • 1 October 2012
In a recent letter published in Experimental Physiology (Heathers, 2012), Heathers obituarizes heart rate variability (HRV) as an index of sympathovagal balance (SVB) without even defining SVB, andExpand

Correlation between short-term heart rate variability indices and heart rate, blood pressure indices, pressor reactivity to isometric handgrip in healthy young male subjects.
The purpose of the present study was to determine whether readily measured blood pressure (BP) indices and, responses to autonomic reflex tests could be used as surrogates of short-term heart rateExpand

Effect of antihypertensive drug therapy on short‐term heart rate variability in newly diagnosed essential hypertension
1. Abnormalities of cardiac autonomic regulation are a potential mechanism for morbidity despite blood pressure (BP) lowering in hypertension. Analysis of short‐term (5 min) heart rate variabilityExpand

Lactic acid is/is not the only physicochemical contributor to the acidosis of exercise
to the editor: I benefited from reading this Point:Counterpoint discussion ([2][1], [3][2]) and some of the papers cited therein and was shocked to learn that the construct of “lactic acidosis” hasExpand

Effect of deep breathing at six breaths per minute on the frequency of premature ventricular complexes.
Although the effect of reflex increase in vagal tone on the frequency of premature ventricular complexes (PVC) is known, the effect of timed deep breathing on the frequency of PVC has not beenExpand
