Effects of Resistance Training on Vascular and Hemodynamic Responses in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease.
Research quarterly for exercise and sport
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of adjunctive resistance training (RT) in aerobically trained patients with coronary artery disease on systolic blood pressure (SBP), heart rate (HR), rating of perceived exertion (RPE; using the traditional 6-to-20 scale), and rate-pressure product (RPP) responses to lifting fixed submaximal workloads. Additionally, pretest and posttest RT measures of brachial artery reactivity were obtained.
METHOD: Fifteen patients with coronary artery disease (M
RESULTS: Attenuated hemodynamic and RPE responses for all variables were observed. Meaningful changes were attained for RPP ([HR × SBP] / 100) during BC (106 ± 27 mmHg × beats/min × 10
CONCLUSION: Among aerobically trained cardiac patients, a supplemental RT program resulted in decreased hemodynamic and RPE responses to lifting fixed submaximal workloads.
