Resistance training (RT) is performed for improvements in body composition in young healthy adults and for health benefits in middle-aged and older adults. Traditionally, RT is prescribed at moderate- to high-intensity to promote benefits on skeletal muscle mass and strength in middle-aged and older adults without considering the vascular effects. Recent evidence suggests that muscle strength may be more protective than muscle mass for cardiovascular disease prevention and that muscle strength… 

The Effects of Resistance Exercise With Blood Flow Restriction on Flow-Mediated Dilation and Arterial Stiffness in Elderly People With Low Gait Speed: Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Trial

The findings of this study will have important implications for the rehabilitation of elderly people as well as the acute and chronic effects of resistance exercise with blood flow restriction on vascular health in elderly people with low gait speed.

The Effect of Whole-Body Traditional and Functional Resistance Training on CAVI and Its Association With Muscular Fitness in Untrained Young Men

It is demonstrated that CAVI was significantly reduced after 6-weeks functional resistance training with beneficial effect on muscular fitness and negative and significant association between CAVI and 1RM bench press indicated the cardiovascular health may be involved in the regulation of resistance training.

Does the level of effort during resistance training influence arterial stiffness and blood pressure in young healthy adults?

Training to failure should be discouraged to avoid acute increases in blood pressure and arterial stiffness, according to the authors.

The Effect of a Single Bout of Resistance Exercise with Blood Flow Restriction on Arterial Stiffness in Older People with Slow Gait Speed: A Pilot Randomized Study

TRE and LIRE-BFR had similar responses regarding hemodynamic parameters and pulse-wave velocity in older people with slow gait speed, and long-term studies should assess the cardiovascular risk and safety of LIRE -BFR training in this population.

Central arterial stiffness, wave reflection, and heart rate variability following 4-week high-intensity resistance training intervention in young active women

4 weeks of HIRT can supplement a healthy lifestyle in women by increasing strength while decreasing peripheral resistance and preserving arterial pressures and to determine long-term effects of this training.

Effects of aerobic, resistance, and combined training on endothelial function and arterial stiffness in older adults: study protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis

A systematic review and meta-analysis involving data from studies of older adults would deepen the understanding of vascular adaptations to exercise training in this population and provide new insights into how health providers can improve patient management and prevention of cardiovascular events in older adults.

Acute Effect of High-Intensity Interval Cycling on Carotid Arterial Stiffness and Hemodynamics

Investigation of the acute effect of high-intensity interval cycling (HIIC) on carotid arterial stiffness and hemodynamics in sedentary males foundarterial stiffness increased and arterial diameter decreased significantly after acute HIIC.

The effects of blood flow restriction exercise on vascular function in the elderly: A systematic review

These results suggest that the addition of BFR to exercise does even improve vascular function in healthy elderly people, a first indication that superimposing BFR is safe also in sedentary elders.

THE THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS OF SPORTS ON ARTERIAL STIFFNESS

Physical exercise can significantly reduce arterial stiffness, and changing the training intensity in sports with the same target heart rate does not affect arterials stiffness.

Effects of Resistance Training With and Without Caloric Restriction on Arterial Stiffness in Overweight and Obese Older Adults.

The combination of RT and CR, leading to a modest amount of weight loss (7%), tended to increase large artery elasticity more than RT alone, suggesting that reductions in waist circumference and blood pressure may promote improvements in elasticity.

The effects of strength training on central arterial compliance in middle-aged and older adults

Thirteen weeks of moderate ST two or three times per week does not reduce central arterial compliance in middle-aged and older adults.

Effects of resistance training on central blood pressure in obese young men

In overweight/obese young men, high-intensity RT decreases cSBP, independently of weight loss and changes in arterial stiffness, and the cardioprotective effects of RT may be related to effects on central blood pressure.

Effects of Age and Aerobic Capacit on Arterial Stiffness in Healthy Adults

Interventions to improve aerobic capacity may mitigate the stiffening of the arterial tree that accompanies normative aging, as shown in the example of endurance trained older men relative to their less active age peers.

Resistance training in men is associated with increased arterial stiffness and blood pressure but does not adversely affect endothelial function as measured by arterial reactivity to the cold pressor test

While carotid arterial stiffening and higher blood pressure are observed in regular resistance‐trained men, these are not associated with abnormalities in carotids arterial vasoreactivity to sympathetic stimulus, which implies intact endothelial function.

Effect of whole body resistance training on arterial compliance in young men

In young men, central arterial Compliance is unaltered with 12 weeks of resistance training and the mechanisms responsible for cardiac hypertrophy and reduced arterial compliance are either not inherent to all resistance‐training programmes or may require a prolonged stimulus.
