Some individuals exhibit extreme increases in blood CK after exercise and have been characterized as high responders (HR), but no clinical definition of HR exists and reasons for the(More)
An exaggerated exercise blood pressure response (EEBPR) may be associated with an increased risk of hypertension. We hypothesized that aerobic exercise training can decrease EEBPR and the risk for hypertension by decreasing arterial resistance. We studied the effects of aerobic training on the submaximal exercise blood pressure (BP) of eight normotensive(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effectiveness of a 10-week aerobic exercise training intervention on blood pressure, cardiorespiratory fitness, and workload in African American women with prehypertension. DESIGN After we obtained informed consent and medical clearance, each participant underwent baseline measurements, an aerobic exercise-training regimen, and(More)
