The effect of chronic voluntary exercise on resting blood pressure and heart rate was measured in two different age groups of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). In the younger group, left ventricular dimensions were also measured. The younger group was 9 weeks old at the start of the experiment and was in a period of rapid blood-pressure rise. The older group, 13 weeks old at the start of the experiment, already had established hypertension. During a period of 6 weeks, the animals ran… CONTINUE READING
