Abstract: Introduction Present literature supports that post exercise hypotensive effect was grade dependent with resting blood pressure (BP). But no study reports exact correlation between the two. Methodology Study Design- Experimental study, Correlation design. Sample size 100. Population Young Collegiate men. Physical Characteristics Sex- Male, Age- 21.572.27 yrs, Height- 169.205.57 cm, Weight- 65.718.89 Kg. Protocol After passing inclusion and exclusion criteria, all subjects were provided with informed written consent, prior to participation. Next day morning after getting up from the bed resting BP was taken using standard procedure by an experienced Physiotherapist. This was followed by administration of 20m shuttle run test until exhaustion. After that subjects were asked to sit in a chair for 120 min and passive recovery blood pressure (RBP) was recorded at 60 min, 120 min intervals. Variables Both systolic and diastolic BP (SBP and DBP respectively) at rest, 30 min, 60 min and 120 min. Statistics Data collected was analyzed using IBM SPSS (21.0 version) software. Pearson-s correlation coefficient (r) test was used to see the correlation between RBP at different intervals with resting BP. Results There was a high negative correlation between RBP in SBP at 60 min, 120 min and resting SBP (r -0.760, -0.822 respectively). There was an excellent correlation between RBP in DBP at 60 min, 120 min and resting DBP (r -0.908, -0.926 respectively). All values were significant at p<0.001. Conclusion There was an inverse association between resting BP and RBP. This effect was more pronounced in DBP than SBP.
