The purpose of this study was to compare blood pressure responses between walking (W) and Aero-Belt(R) walking (ABW), and W and Power-Belt(R) walking (PBW) in young-normotensive individuals. Twelve (n = 12) participants were asked to randomly complete three 12-mm W, ABW, and PBW exercise sessions at 93.8 m*[min.sup.-1]. Blood pressure was measured at 4-mm, 8-mm, and immediately on completion of the 12-min exercise session. Mean blood pressure (Pmean) was computed in each case for statistical analyses purposes. A MANOVA was used to determine significance in BP responses between the three walking modalities. If significance was found (p[less than].05), a follow-up repeated measure ANOVA was used to identify theses differences. Pmean responses at 4, 8, and 12 min were as follows: W =81. …
