Abstract: Objective(s): To investigate the anti-hypertensive effect threshold of isometric handgrip training and suitability for stoke prevention and recovery. Design: Randomized controlled trial. Setting: Exercise physiology laboratory at the University of New England, Armidale, Australia. Participants: Individuals previously diagnosed with mild or pre hypertension, men (n = 6) and women (n = 10), aged 52 ± 7.9 years; with a resting systolic blood pressure (SBP) ≥ 120mmHg and/or a resting diastolic blood pressure (DBP) ≥ 80mmHg, or receiving anti-hypertensive pharmacotherapy (69%). None refused or withdrew due to adverse effects.
