-statements while moving their heads, participants’ performance was assessed in three different tasks. (A vertical jump task in which jump height was computed, a squat test in which pulse rate [PR] was measured, and a deadlift task in which amount of weight in one-repetition maximum [1RM] was estimated

Hemodynamic and left ventricular systolic function were studied by Doppler echocardiography in 14 young and 15 older adult hypertensive patients and in 15 young and 12 older normotensive individuals. Measures were made at rest and during upright deadlift isometric exercise, at 30% of maximum voluntary contraction for 3 min. At rest, young and older hypertensive patients demonstrated impaired left ventricular systolic function compared to both old and young normotensive subjects. The impaired systolic function was associated with less augmentation in systolic indices during exercise compared with resting values in young and elderly hypertensive patients, and to a lesser degree in the normotensive elderly when compared with young normotensives. These data indicate that at rest, left ventricular systolic function may be compromised in hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy and, to a lesser extent, in the normotensive elderly. However, other factors in chronic hypertension may contribute to abnormal systolic function and override the effects of aging alone.

, Medway, MA) and a hex bar with polyurethane-coated Olympic plates (Perform Better, West Warwick, RI) were used for strength testing. The 3-RM was determined by measuring the maximum mass that could be lifted for three repetitions on six different exercises: 45° leg press, hex bar deadlift, chest press
