Changes in Vascular and Hemodynamic Parameters Following Acute Exercise and Antioxidant Supplementation 2010 508 Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate the potential additive effects of the multi-flavonoid plus fish oil combination and aerobic exercise on post exercise hypotension (PEH). We hypothesize that the use of a multi-flavonoid plus...
The effects of aerobic exercise timing on sleep architecture 2011 3131 It is well known that the quality of sleep has direct effects on the manifestations of disease. Further, exercise has been shown to enhance the quality of sleep, yet little is known regarding how exercise effects sleep stages. Our laboratory has s...
The Effects of Four Weeks of Aerobic Training on Arterial Stiffness and the Renin-Angiotensin & Aldosterone System on Stage One Hypertensive Obese Individuals 2011 1220 Increases in blood pressure (BP) are directly related to increases in body mass and obesity related hypertension is associated with pronounced activity of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and increased pulse wave velocity (PWV). The p...
Sex Differences in Cardiac Autonomic Modulation and Baroreflex Sensitivity Following Differential Exercise Training 2011 435 Maintained balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic tone within the cardiac autonomic systems is a vital component of cardiovascular regulation. The alteration of baroreflex function can contribute to chronic parasympathetic withdrawal and sub...
Effects of Aerobic Exercise on Nocturnal Blood Pressure Dipping in Prehypertensive Individuals 2011 1328 Fifteen prehypertensive individuals completed a 30 minute timed bout of moderate intensity aerobic exercise at 7 AM, 1 PM, and 7 PM. Following each exercise bout, the subject’s were outfitted with an ambulatory blood pressure cuff and their blood pre...
Changes in Cardiac Autonomic Modulation in Children Following 4 and 8 Weeks of Supervised Summer Activity 2011 374 Background: Pediatric obesity is associated with lower physical activity levels and a decrease in cardiac autonomic modulation. Physical activity contributes cardiovascular improvements via increases in heart rate variability. However involvement in ...
The Effects of a Multi-Flavonoid Supplement on Vascular and Hemodynamic Parameters in Older Pre-Hypertensives 2012 397 Antioxidants have been shown to increase vasodilation, increasing vascular distensibility and decreasing blood pressure (BP) in individuals with elevated BP; therefore an additive effect would be expected when combined with exercise. The purpose of t...
The Effects of a Multi-Flavonoid Supplement on Cardiac Autonomic Regulation 2012 569 Antioxidant supplementation has been shown to stimulate positive effects on cardiovascular health including a reduction in blood pressure by alleviating arterial stiffness, but little is known of the benefits of antioxidants on the autonomic nervous ...
Hemodynamics and Sleep Architecture Following Acute Alcohol Ingestion in College Age Males 2013 280 Hypertension is a progressive disease characterized by elevated blood pressures which can cause damage to arteries and increases afterload leading to myocardial remodeling and a progressively worsening cardiovascular function. This increase in afterl...
Effects of Resistance Exercise Timing on Sleep Architecture 2014 108 Short sleep duration and poor sleep quality have been associated with numerous health risks. Prior research has suggested that regular aerobic exercise improves sleep quality; however, less is known regarding how resistance exercise (RE) may affect ...
Resistance Exercise Timing Effects on Blood Pressure 2014 83 Research shows that resistance exercise can lower blood pressure, yet little is known regarding the best time for resistance exercise for the greatest blood pressure benefit; therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of resistan...
