CSCS Question of the Day:

One of your clients has a blood pressure of 120 / 80 while resting. During maximal aerobic exercise, his blood pressure rises to as much as 260 mmHg. Which type of blood pressure can experience this type of increase during aerobic exercise?

(A) Diastolic
(B) Systolic

scroll down for answer…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Correct Answer:
(B) Systolic

Explanation:
Systolic pressure is the blood pressure exerted against blood vessel walls while the heart is contracting (left ventricle) and pushing blood out into systemic circulation. Since your client is doing maximal aerobic exercise, his heart is going to contract more forcefully due to a number of factors. Stronger contractions cause the systolic blood pressure to increase.
