Acute resistive exercise does not affect ambulatory blood pressure in young men and women.

PURPOSE Resistive exercise elicits a pressor response that results in a dramatic increase in blood pressure (BP) during the exercise. However, it is not known if the BP elevation persists after resistive exercise. METHODS This study examined the effects of an acute resistive exercise session on 24-h ambulatory BP in sedentary (5 men, 6 women), resistance… CONTINUE READING
