Paradoxical dissociation between heart rate and heart rate variability

What is it about?

Paradoxical dissociation between heart rate and heart rate variability following different modalities of exercise in individuals with metabolic syndrome: participants with moderate intensity of training had greater improvements in sympathovagal balance, whereas those with high intensity in resistance training had greater decreases in heart rate and greater increases in VLF. LF/HF changes were linked with visceral fat loss only with a specific modality of exercise.

Why is it important?

Paradoxical dissociation between heart rate and heart rate variability. Modality-specific relationships were observed between enhanced HRV and visceral fat loss.

Perspectives

Heart rate, sympathovagal balance, and very-low components of HRV were separately and distinctly improved. As those variables are independent predictors of mortality, further studies are needed on modalities of exercise to improve survival.
