Exercise training is a well-established non-pharmacological treatment for reducing blood pressure. However, there is still a need for further research in order to establish the right "dose" of exercise for reducing blood pressure (training intensity and volume); moreover, more data are required for assessing the comparative impact on blood pressure of different exercise modalities. In the last several decades, high blood pressure variability has been related to an increased risk of cardiovascular events. Until now, very few studies evaluating the effects of exercise training on blood pressure variability have been published, and there is no general agreement on the best exercise training program for subjects with high blood pressure variability.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Neuro-hormonal and metabolic changes associated with post-exercise hypotension;
- Effects of exercise training on the blood pressure of hypertensive athletes;
- Hemodynamic changes occurring during post-exercise hypotension;
- Impact on blood pressure of water-based versus land-based exercise;
- Effects of different volumes of resistance training on blood pressure variability;
- Gender-related differences on the effects of exercise training on blood pressure variability;
- Impact of different exercise protocols on resistance hypertension.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sports is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
