Resistance, Aerobic, and Combination Training on Vascular Function in Overweight and Obese Adults
The Journal of Clinical Hypertension, 08/21/2012
Ho SS et al. – The authors did not observe significant changes in systolic blood pressure, DBP, or augmentation index between the interventions when assessing the entire cohort, although there were significant improvements in a subgroup of responders. Thus, some but not all overweight and obese individuals can improve blood pressure and arterial stiffness by participating in regular combination exercise, decreasing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
