*Dr. E. O. Otis (previous owner of this book) took the blood pressure of 59 men, 6 boys, 3 young women, at three periods as follows: just before gymnasium work, immediately after, and then a little later after a short rest or after the usual bath. He came to the conclusion that if immediately after exercise the blood pressure is subnormal and remains so for some time, even if the exercise is moderate and not long continued, then for that individual, or for his condition at the time of taking the exercise, we may consider the exertion too strenuous or too prolonged. The effect of systematic training can be well shown by the blood pressure curve. In a number of cases as tested by Otis, the blood pressure would rise high, then fall to subnormal, to return to normal after rest. If this same exercise were persisted in day after day the rise in blood pressure would usually be lower and often at the end of the exercise would still be normal or above normal, showing that the point of fatigue now was not reached. source: Gooble Books Addresses and Proceedings, Volume 51 By National Education Association of the United States
