The purpose of the current study was to determine if exercise-induced muscle pain is modulated by central neural mechanisms (i.e. higher brain systems). Ratings of muscle pain perception (MPP) and perceived exertion (RPE), muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA), arterial pressure, and heart rate were measured during fatiguing isometric handgrip (IHG) at 30% maximum voluntary contraction and postexercise muscle ischaemia (PEMI). The exercise trial was performed twice, before and after… CONTINUE READING
