Objective: Isometric exercise training (IET) over 4-12 weeks is an effective anti-hypertensive intervention. However, blood pressure (BP) reductions are reversible if exercise is not maintained. No work to date has investigated the long-term effects of IET on resting blood pressure.
Results: 1-year of IET produced statistically significant reductions in resting systolic (-8.5±5 mmHg, p<0.001) and diastolic (-7.3±5.8 mmHg, p<0.001) BP compared to the control group. There was also a significant reduction in resting HR (-4.2±3.7 bmin-1, p=0.009) and significant increase in SV (11.2±2.8 ml, p=0.012), with no significant change in CO (0.12±2.8 Lmin-1, p=0.7). TPR significantly decreased following IET (-246±88 dyne·s·cm-5, p=0.011). Adherence to the IET sessions was 77% across all participants (3x IET sessions per week), with no participant withdrawals.
