  1. Data are Mean ± SD
  2. No condition x time interaction or condition effect was noted for HR, SBP, or DBP (p > 0.05).
  3. *A time effect was noted for all variables (p < 0.05); HR and SBP higher than Pre at 2.5 hr; DBP lower than Pre at 2.5 hr.
  4. HR-heart rate; SBP-systolic blood pressure; DBP-diastolic blood pressure
