Objective: to observe, through a literature review, the effects of counter-resistance exercise on hypotension postexercise. Methods: this is a review study, based on national and international literature, that was considered the inclusion of articles in order to determine the cardiovascular responses in patients, with the use of resistance exercises, which used non-invasive methods of measurement of blood pressure. Studies that showed no recovery time after exercise as well as research involving other types of combined exercise except resistance exercise were excluded. Results: among the eleven studies involving hemodynamic responses and resistance exercise, four were evaluated considering the criteria for exclusion. Two studies showed a decrease in BP after a resistance exercise session for both systolic blood pressure and for diastolic blood pressure. One study that was found only for systolic blood pressure, and another just for the diastolic. Final comments: although it is not yet a consensus about the prescription of exercise for post-exercise hypotension, resistance exercise greater volume impacting more positively in blood pressure after activity, and this result may be more easily found through the systematic and continued practice of resistance exercise (physical training), and not simply an acute form.
