The Acute Effects of High‐Intensity Cycling Exercise on Arterial Stiffness in Adolescent Wrestlers

were as follows: a single bout of 30‐s high‐intensity cycling exercise resulted in (a) a decrease in systolic diameter at the 5th min after the 30‐s Wingate test (p < 0.05) and diastolic diameter also decreased, but not to a statistically significant level, (b) there was a statistically significant decrease in arterial compliance and the beta stiffness index at the 5th min of recovery following the 30‐s cycling exercise, and (c) the subjects with relatively high mean power had lower arterial stiffness, and beta stiffness index values. The decrease in arterial
