The effects of functional training sessions on systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure, heart beat rate (HR) and heart beat-pressure product (HPP) in 24 untrained women (25 ± 5 years; 53 ± 6 kg; 164 ± 5 cm; 23.09 ± 2.64 kg m-2; 22.99 ± 3.38% body fat) were investigated. The subjects participated on a functional training class following by a control follow-up. Variables were registered prior to training exercise, and 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 minutes after training. Whereas ANOVA reported a significant decrease (p < 0.05) in SBP as from the twentieth minute (Δ% = 8.00%, p = 0.001), decrease in DBP started at the tenth minute (Δ % = 5.80%,p = 0.0002). Significant decreases were observed at the thirtieth (Δ% = 5.85%, p = 0.0004) and fiftieth (Δ % = 4.14%, p = 0.006) minute. HR increase was reported immediately after the test (Δ% = 40.02%, p = 0.00) and presented significant decreases as from the fourth minute (Δ% = 7.95%, p = 0.01). Decreases in HPP rates were observed at twenty minutes after the exercise (Δ% = 13.5%, p = 0.0002). Data analysis show that functional training sessions triggered significant reductions on SBP, DBP, HR and HPP in young females. Source
