Determining the Gender Differences in Cardiovascular Responses to Isometric Exercise in Normotensive Subjects
Introduction: Research on the role of gender on the effect of isometric exercise on cardiovascular parameters has produced mixed results. The goal of the study was to see if there were any differences in cardiovascular responses to isometric exercise between men and women. Materials and Procedures: On 25 normotensive females and 25 normotensive males, handgrip exercises were done (ages 20-25). The following parameters were measured before and immediately after the handgrip exercise at 40% MVC: I Maximum voluntary contraction (MVC), ii) Endurance time (ET), iii) Heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and cardiac work. iv) all of the preceding variables were compared between males and females 1) When males and females were compared, males had significantly greater MVC. 2) Female endurance time was shown to be much longer than male endurance time. 3) After hand grip training, both males and females’ heart rates, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and cardiac work rose significantly compared to before the exercise. Conclusion: After isometric exercise, sympathetic activity is increased. In comparison to females, guys have more positive responses.
