Effect of fatigue induced by strength training on blood pressure response in hypertensive subjects: A systematic review
AbstractThe objective of this study was to systematically review the literature on blood pressure response after strength training in hypertensive subjects, trying to identify the effect of failure in this response. We performed a literature search in SciELO, LILACS, PubMed / MedLine databases. Out of 9377 studies, only six met the inclusion criteria and were included in the review. Five studies (83.3%) reported a reduction in systolic or diastolic blood pressure. Regarding failure, 66.7% (n = 4) of the studies performed the sets until failure while 33.3% (n = 2) interrupted exercise before failure. Out of the four studies that used protocols until failure, 75% (n=3) observed a reduction in blood pressure, and the two studies who discontinued before the series also showed a reduction of failure. The magnitude of blood pressure reduction was similar among studies that employed both protocols. Thus, the results indicated that the reduction in blood pressure after strength training in subjects with hypertension is independent of the occurrence of failure.
