* indicates significance at week 2 compared to baseline (p < 0.05).
† indicates signifincance between control and experimental groups at week 2 (p < 0.05). RSBP - Resting systolic blood pressure. PostSBP - Post exercise systolic blood pressure. RecSBP - Systolic blood pressure after 5 minutes recovery. RHR - Resting heart rate. HR15 - Heart rate at 15 minutes cycling. HR30 - Heart rate at 30 minutes cycling. HR30 - Heart rate at 30 minutes cycling. RecHR - Heart rate after 5 minutes recovery
