1. Large artery stiffness, or its inverse, compliance, determines pulse pressure, which, in turn, influences myocardial work capacity and coronary perfusion, both of which impact on exercise capacity and cardiovascular risk. 2. In support of a role for arterial properties in exercise performance, aerobically trained athletes (aged 30-59 years) have lower arterial stiffness than their sedentary counterparts. Furthermore, in healthy older subjects (aged 57-80 years), time to exhaustion on… CONTINUE READING
