          Abstract

          Global and segmental left ventricular dynamics during strenuous large-muscle isometric exercise were compared between endurance and static type professional athletes and sedentary men. Using a trunk dynamometer and supine echocardiography, only the weight lifters manifested increased (p < 0.01) wall thickness during both diastole and systole, resulting in decreased left ventricular volume at end systole. These group-related differences would suggest a causal relationship between chronic intensive weight-lifting training and efficient myocardial dynamics at the time of strenuous isometric exercise.
