cPWV at three predefined time intervals when subjects performed resistance exercise by using exhalation technique during exertion. One-way repeated-measure ANOVA (with adjustment of age, body mass index, and systolic blood pressure) demonstrated that no significant difference in cPWV ( = 0.156) exists among the three time intervals.
