OBJECTIVES We sought to study the relationship between left ventricular (LV) size and body composition in male endurance athletes and age-matched control subjects. BACKGROUND Endurance training is associated with increases in both left ventricular mass (LVM) and left ventricular end-diastolic dimension (LVEDD) in athletes. In other populations, LVM is independently predicted by fat-free mass (FFM). We hypothesized that the increase in LV size and mass observed with training may be a normal… CONTINUE READING
