Chronic and acute effects of resistance training on autonomic modulation in elderly

      Background/Aims: Elderly subjects presented autonomic alterations that affect cardiovascular control. High-intensity resistance training (RT) is strongly recommended for this population, because it increases strength and muscle mass. However, the effects of this type of training on the autonomic system remain unclear. Thus, this study investigated the chronic and acute effects of RT on cardiovascular autonomic modulation in elderly.
