aim of the present study was to analyze the hemodynamic responses during
resistance exercise performed at different intensities and with different
recovery intervals. This study was conducted on twenty-four apparently
healthy male individuals (25.50 ± 3.72 years and 76.50 ± 4.50 kg) experienced
in strength training. The volunteers performed a 1RM test to determine the
training load for the study. Blood pressure and Rate Pressure Product were
measured before and at the end of the exercise training. The only significant
difference observed was in SBP during strength training at 70% intensity (121.7
± 8.68, p = 0.039), which was lower than SBP at the remaining intensities of
80% (126.3 ± 7.11) and 90% (127.1 ± 7.51).
It was concluded that strength training performed at different
intensities and recovery intervals did not significantly alter most
variables, changing only the SBP due to the intensity employed.
