Effects of aerobic, resistance, and combined training on endothelial function and arterial stiffness in older adults: study protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis

Effects of aerobic, resistance, and combined training on endothelial function and arterial stiffness in older adults: study protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis
Discussion and conclusions Different modalities of exercise training appear to improve or at least do not cause harm to endothelial function in different populations [68, 78, 80, 81]. In contrast, resistance and combined exercise training exert null [69, 83] or even negative effects [70, 76, 77] on different of vascular function parameters especially arterial stiffness. These findings may be associated with strength training variables and heterogeneity of the populations studied [66, 69, 102]. Given that aging is an independent risk factor for CVDs [1, 2, 40], a systematic review may help further understand the changes elicited in vascular structure and function from interventions with different modalities of exercise training in older people.
