|Title:||Clinically Meaningful Blood Pressure Reductions With Low Intensity Isometric Handgrip Exercise: A Randomized Trial||Contributor(s):||Hess, Nicole (author); Carlson, Debra (author); Inder, Jodie (author); Jesulola, Emmanuel (author); McFarlane, James R (author) ; Smart, Neil (author)||Publication Date:||2016||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/19350||Abstract:||There exists no examination of what is the minimum antihypertensive threshold intensity for isometric exercise training. Twenty two normotensive participants were randomly assigned to training intensities at either 5% or 10% of their maximal contraction. Twenty participants completed the study. Clinical meaningful, but not statistically significant, reductions in systolic blood pressure were observed in both 5% and 10% groups -4.04 mm Hg (95 % CI -8.67 to +0.59, p=0.08) and -5.62 mm Hg (95 % CI -11.5 to +0.29, p=0.06) respectively after 6 weeks training. No diastolic blood pressure reductions were observed in either 5 % -0.97 mm Hg (95 % CI -2.56 to +0.62, p=0.20) or 10 % MVC +1.8 mm Hg (95 % CI -1.29 to +4.89, p=0.22) groups respectively after training. In those unable to complete isometric exercise at the traditional 30 % intensity, our results suggest there is no difference between 5 and 10 % groups and based on the principle of regression to the mean, this could mean both interventions induce a similar placebo-effect.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Physiological Research, 65(3), p. 461-468||Publisher:||Akademie Ved Ceske Republiky||Place of Publication:||Czech Republic||ISSN:||1802-9973
