During exercise, reflex renal vasoconstriction helps maintain blood pressure and redistributes blood flow to the contracting muscle. Sex and muscle mass have been shown to influence certain cardiovascular responses to exercise. Whether sex and/or muscle mass influence renal vasoconstrictor responses to exercise is unknown. We studied healthy men (n = 10) and women (n = 10) matched for age and body mass index during handgrip (HG, small muscle mass) and quadriceps contraction (QC, large muscle… CONTINUE READING
