BACKGROUND We tested the hypothesis that the nonactive limb vasoconstriction evoked during large-muscle dynamic exercise becomes augmented with aging in humans. METHODS AND RESULTS Sixteen young control subjects (age, 26 +/- 1 year) and twelve older (65 +/- 1 year) healthy men with similar chronic physical activity levels were studied during supine leg cycling exercise. Both peak work load (1,100 +/- 60 versus 1,400 +/- 40 kpm/min) and peak O2 uptake (1.85 +/- 0.10 versus 2.38 +/- 0.07 l/min… CONTINUE READING
