The primary aim of the study was to compare changes in blood pressure (BP) in normotensive and prehypertensive men completing resistance exercise following caffeine ingestion. Normotensive (n = 7) and hypertensive men (n = 7) ingested caffeine (6 mg x kg(-1)) or placebo 1 h preexercise, then completed four sets of bench press, leg press, lat pull-down, and shoulder press at 70%-80% one repetition maximum (1-RM). Heart rate (HR) and BP were measured preexercise, during exercise, and for 75 min postexercise. Caffeine increased (p < 0.05) resting, exercise, and recovery systolic BP, yet had no effect on HR (p = 0.16) or diastolic BP (p = 0.10). HR and BP were significantly higher (p < 0.05) in prehypertensive men versus normotensives. Postexercise hypotension did not occur in either treatment, suggesting that intense resistance training with or without caffeine intake may mitigate the BP-lowering effect of resistance exercise.
