1. How do SBP and DBP response to cycling exercise of increasing intensity? What should the response to SBP and DBP be when performing exercise?

2. How does the blood pressure response during isometric handgrip compare with the response during isometric wall sit. Explain differences.

3. Explain the changes you observed in blood pressure with the different body positions. Explain what accounts for differences in blood pressure. Which position should contain the highest blood pressure reading? Which one should contain the lowest blood pressure reading? Explain why. (look for the top part of the attached file for the values for comparision)
