This study aimed to compare the blood pressure responses in normotensive-trained men following resistance training (RT) experimental sessions with loads of 60% and 80% of a one-repetition maximum. Ten participants underwent three experimental condition: (P60) – session adjusted with 60%, (P80) – session adjusted with 80% of 1 repetition maximum (1RM) and, (CONT) – only blood pressure assessments in rest condition for 60min (intervals of 10min). The resistance training design was adjusted with 3-sets, 3-min rest interval length between sets and exercises. Blood pressure was measured before, and at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60min after the training session. The results showed that both protocols induce post-exercise hypotension (p <0 05 compared to the rest values p80 showed greater magnitude and duration of post exercise hypotension when with p60 protocol p
<0 05 in conclusion resistance training is effective to provide a post exercise hypotension independent of the load intensities this study important show importance control intensity during development programs and rt with 60 1rm can be as protocols 80 prevent high blood pressure
