The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the arterial blood pressure, vasoconstrictor, and sympathoadrenal adjustments to sustained submaximal isometric exercise become augmented with advancing age in humans. Fourteen young (26 +/- 1 yr) and 14 older (66 +/- 1 yr) healthy males performed isometric handgrip exercise at 30% of maximal voluntary force until exhaustion (inability to maintain target force). Maximal handgrip force was quite similar in the young and older subjects (402… CONTINUE READING
