Active Voice: High Blood Pressure During Weight Lifting — Damaging to Your Blood Vessels?

from By Cullen E. Buchanan, B.S. and Matthew J. Durand, Ph.D.

Cullen E. Buchanan, B.S. Matthew J. Durand, Ph.D.
From June 27: Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily represent positions of policies of ACSM.

Cullen E. Buchanan, B.S., is a third-year medical student at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. In conjunction with his ongoing medical school studies, he is engaged in completing the honors in research option. In 2013, he earned a bachelor of science degree in exercise and movement science from the Kinesiology Department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His research interests relate to exercise and vascular function.

Matthew J. Durand, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. He learned techniques to measure peripheral vascular function in humans during his postdoctoral fellowship and applied those techniques to examine how exercise-induced increases in blood pressure influenced vasodilator function in athletes and non-athletes. Dr. Durand is currently conducting studies examining how reduced peripheral blood flow impacts recovery of motor and muscle function in post-stroke subjects.

This commentary presents the authors’ views on the topic of their research article that they had published with other colleagues. Their article appears in the April 2017 issue of
Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE). more
