We compared reflex responses to static handgrip at 30% maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) in 26 untrained men (mean age 35 +/- 3 yr) and 23 untrained women (mean age 39 +/- 4 yr). Women demonstrated attenuated increases in blood pressure and muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA; by microneurography) compared with men. This difference was also observed during a period of posthandgrip circulatory arrest. 31P-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy studies demonstrated attenuations in… CONTINUE READING
