Respiratory Muscle Contribution to Blood Pressure During Exercise


About this study

The investigators seek to understand how reflexes from the breathing muscles influence blood pressure during exercise. Furthermore, the investigators are determining if increasing breathing muscle strength (via inspiratory muscle training) influences the respiratory muscle contribution to blood pressure during exercise.
