The role of physical activity in cardiovascular health has received increasing atten­ tion in recent years. A large number of reports have indicated that populations or individuals with high levels of physical activity tend to have a lower prevalence of symptomatic coronary artery disease and lesser death rates from cardiovascular diseases (69, 139). Although no single report provides complete proof that physical activity has a protective effect, the evidence heavily favors that conclusion. The… 
Exercise and physical activity in the adult population
  • D. Peterson
  • Medicine
    Journal of General Internal Medicine
  • 2007
TLDR
The percept ion exists that there are many more vigorous exercisers now than there were 5 20 years ago, but what may be happening is a progression of exercise from individuals' doing some form of moderate exercise to the same individuals' do ing more strenuous exercise.
Effects of exercise training on the cardiovascular system: pharmacological approaches.
TLDR
This review summarizes and examines the data from studies using animal models and human to determine the effect of exercise training on the cardiovascular system.
Physical Activity for Healthy Adults: Counseling as a Primary Preventive Intervention in Clinical Settings
TLDR
Evidence suggests that although there has been an increase in leisure-time physical activity by American adults during the 1970s and 1980s, the rate of increase has recently declined, and the role of physical activity in preventing CHD in particular is of major public health importance.
Cardiac pathology and sports medicine.
TLDR
There is a growing body of evidence from epidemiologic studies suggesting that regular exercise may help to prevent coronary heart disease and reduce the incidence of sudden death and the overall effect of habitual exercise is beneficial.
Does Aerobic Exercise Reduce Stress Responses
TLDR
It is hypothesized that exercise also may modulate cardiovascular responses to psychological stress by attenuating cardiovascular and neuroendocrine responses to psychosocial Stressors.
Aging, fitness and muscular performance
TLDR
It is recognized that in elderly people the balance shifts; muscle performance, changes in blood distribution and peripheral microvascular capacity become ever more important determinants of exercise performance and should command increasing research interest.
Exercise and the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
  • A. Oberman
  • Medicine
    The American journal of cardiology
  • 1985
TLDR
Until more rigorous scientific data are available, judgment on the use of exercise in prevention of CAD must necessarily be based on the accumulation of evidence supporting the role of physical activity.
The importance of exercise as a therapeutic agent.
TLDR
Regular physical exercise reduces the risk of premature mortality in general, and of coronary heart disease, hypertension and diabetes mellitus, and is important for health and optimal function of muscles, bones and joints.
Effects of aerobic training on heart rate
TLDR
A reduction of the cardiac vagal tone and consequently a diminished HR variability inrest, independently of the protocol of measurement used, is related to an autonomic dysfunction, chronic-degenera-tive diseases and increased mortality risk.
Physical activity, physical fitness and longevity
TLDR
The data from these studies indicate that physical activity is effective in postponing mortality and enhancing longevity, and public health professionals worldwide should emphasize the need to increase activity levels during leisure time, as well as theneed to incorporate physical activity into the daily activities of life.

TLDR
Exercise tests performed according to a suitable protocol provide valuable diagnostic information about the functional capacity of the cardiovascular system and form a rational basis for recommendations on physical activity in CAD patients' patients.
Long‐Term Physical Training and Cardiovascular Dynamics in Middle‐Aged Men
TLDR
It is concluded that aside from subjective enhancement of well-being, a well-planned physical training program for middle-aged men can develop beneficial economy and efficiency of myocardial function and the oxygen transport system.
Effects of a Quantitated Physical Training Program on Middle‐Aged Sedentary Men
TLDR
The effects of a 15-week quantitated training program were evaluated in nine men, 32 to 59 years old, who had been blind for 10 years or more but were otherwise in good health and who discontinued training after 15 weeks.
Physical training in sedentary middle-aged and older men. I. Medical evaluation.
TLDR
In a group of 68 middle-aged sedentary men participating for 2 months in hard physical training, 5 were initially advised against participation for medical reasons; 54 subjects completed the training program and a significant reduction of the iron and cholesterol levels in the serum occurred.
Functional adaptations to physical activity and inactivity.
TLDR
The increase in the oxidative potential of skeletal muscle after training is presented as the mechanism by which capacity for submaximal work is augmented.
Chronic training with static and dynamic exercise: cardiovascular adaptation, and response to exercise.
TLDR
It is suggested that endurance training alters both the absolute and relative left ventricular mass and the response of the cardiovascular system to static exercise, as static exercise training increases the absolute but not the relative left Ventricular mass.
Effect of a mild exercise program on myocardial function and the development of hypertrophy.
TLDR
The data suggest that the heart from an exercised animal is better able to tolerate increases in afterload and hypoxia and can respond with compensatory myocardial hypertrophy more rapidly than the heart of a sedentary animal.
Influences of Physical Training on the Heart of Dogs
To investigate the effects of physical training on cardiac dimensions and function, eight dogs were exercised for 12 weeks by treadmill running 1 hour/ day, 5 days/week. Five dogs were confined in
Cardiovascular studies on former endurance athletes.
TLDR
It is considered to suggest that dilatation rather than hypertrophy is the main determinant of the increased heart volume induced by training.
Coronary circulation during heavy exercise in control subjects and patients with coronary heart disease.
TLDR
The impaired myocardial performance was best demonstrated in two patients with exercise-provoked angina pectoris who developed rapidly increasing left atrial pressure.
