Figure 1. Total distance (m) on treadmill during the training protocol. Left panels, 3 days (N = 23). Right panel, 13 weeks (N = 23). In the 3-day protocol, the maximal test was done at the beginning and at the end of the protocol. In the 13-week protocol, the maximal test was performed at week 0 and repeated at the 6th and 13th weeks. Data are reported as means ± SEM for 46 rats. WKY = Wistar Kyoto rats (N = 22); SHR = spontaneously hypertensive rats (N = 24). *P < 0.05 compared to sedentary rats at the same time; +P < 0.05 compared to week 0 (repeated measures one-way ANOVA).
