Heavy and moderate interval exercise training alters low-flow-mediated constriction but does not increase circulating progenitor cells in healthy humans
Moderate‐intensity endurance exercise training improves vascular endothelial vasomotor function; however, the impact of high‐intensity exercise training has been equivocal. Thus, the effect of theExpand
