    YMCA Step Test Question ACSM

    During the 3rd stage of the YMCA bike test, your clients blood pressure goes from 150/88 to 130/80. What should you do?
    Select one:
    a. nothing, let them continue and monitor heart rate
    b. have them stop, cooldown, and refer to physician.
    c. let them go another stage and retake blood pressure.
    d. assume the heart is strong because the number went down.

    I think the answer that they're looking for is B. You are supposed to stop a test when BP drops or plateaus in response to an increase workload.

    Title of thread says YMCA step test, but question refers to cycle ergometer test

    Either way, A drop in systolic blood pressure should result in you stoping the test
