s-ICAM-1 is a marker of inflammation, and has been shown to increase in circulation following exercise. The circulating levels s-ICAM-1 following resistance exercise bouts with short (1MIN) versus longer (3MIN) rest intervals were studied. Blood samples were collected from the six male subjects pre-exercise, immediately following exercise, 1.5 h after, and 24 h after, then analyzed for s-ICAM-1, cortisol, and creatine kinase (CK). Data was analyzed using a 2x4 ANOVA. There was no difference between 1MIN and 3MIN conditions in the pattern of change in s-ICAM-1, both conditions exhibited a significant change above resting. Cortisol did not change across times or conditions. Creatine kinase was significantly higher at 24 h in both conditions. Pearson’s correlations found no relationships among s-ICAM-1, CK, and cortisol. CK appears to be a better marker of inflammation following resistance exercise than s-ICAM-1.
