Abstract

The purposes of the study were: 1) To examine the acute effects of dynamic whole body vibration (WBV) training on small and large arterial stiffness; 2) To examine the effects of different frequency and amplitude protocols in heart rate (HR), systolic and diastolic blood pressure, mean arterial pressure (MAP), cardiac output (CO), and stroke volume (SV); 3) Identify the best WBV protocol to decrease acutely arterial stiffness.
