Abstract

[automatically translated] A regular workout moderate, and mainly aerobic has positive effects on the overall well-being and in particular on cardiovascular performance, making a significant contribution in the primary prevention of heart disease, as an essential element of the treatment of metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia or atherosclerosis, conditions recognized as risk factors for cardiovascular events. The moderate exercise is also essential in secondary prevention and in the rehabilitation phase of ischemic heart disease or heart failure. The beneficial effects are not so clear, however, when physical activity becomes extremely intense, or strenuous: in athletes often show heart modifications, electrical and structural, generally designated by the term "athlete's heart", which represent an adaptive response to increased cardiac work, and which are influenced by factors such as training for a specific sport, sex and race. Although these adaptations are generally valued as physiological and reversible, some recent observations indicate that a strenuous exercise (such as ultra-marathon) will damage the fabric and reduces myocardial systolic performance of both the left ventricle to the right ventricle and the atrial and ventricular remodeling right could represent pathological adaptations, predisposing to arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. and they are influenced by factors such as training for a specific sport, sex and race.
