We sought to determine how the mode of muscle metaboreflex activation influences the central hemodynamic response and cardiac inotropic and lusotropic function in healthy humans. Ten healthy males performed (i) isometric handgrip (IHG) with and without post-exercise ischemia (PEI) to examine the influence of isolated muscle metaboreflex activation and (ii) rhythmic handgrip (RHG) with and without ischemia to examine the influence of enhanced muscle metaboreflex activation. Heart rate (HR) and… CONTINUE READING
