Circadian rhythm (CR) can influence the physiological and psychological parameters in every individual. There is a sinusoidal response to blood pressure brought about by the CR. A drop in blood pressure response immediately after an exercise is termed as post-exercise hypotension (PEH). The objective of the present paper is to review the influence of CR on PEH. Comparing the types of exercises, aerobic training showed a higher magnitude of the drop in PEH than resistance training. However, the majority of the studies have not considered the CR influence on PEH. With the evidence available, we can conclude that morning exercise shows the higher magnitude of the drop in PEH and could be sustained for a longer duration.
