Heart rate responses at onset of contraction.


We tested the hypothesis that the initial heart rate (HR) response at the onset of maximal handgrip contraction is altered after training. 17 volunteers (nine trained and eight controls) performed ten intermittent static handgrip contractions with maximal effort, alternating between 15-s contractions and 15-s pauses. High-intensity static handgrip training… (More)
