Although many studies of the effect of dynamic exercise training on left ventricular (LV) mass have been reported, controversy continues to exist. Previous work has been criticized because of the techniques used for measuring LV mass, the variable level of training of the subjects recruited and the methods used to normalize the data. In an attempt to resolve this controversy, LV mass was determined using the very accurate and reproducible technique of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Highly… CONTINUE READING
