Abstract

Aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) significantly decreased after 16 weeks of moderate-intensity exercise training (walking/jogging) in 17 sedentary middle-aged men, whereas leg PWV did not. These results suggest that in contrast with central arterial stiffness, peripheral arterial stiffness is difficult to change with aerobic exercise training.
