Previous studies examining the delay to the onset of vasodilation have primarily focused on the onset of exercise, a setting complicated by the fact that the muscle pump and the vasodilator systems are both activated, making it difficult to attribute changes in blood flow to one or both. The goal here was to determine the delay to the onset of vasodilation after changes in work rate imposed by changes in treadmill grade (work intensity) during locomotion at a steady speed. The rationale was… CONTINUE READING
