Safety and efficacy of resistive training in patients with coronary heart disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the past 10-15 years, there have been several studies on the acute and chronic responses to resistive training in patients with cardiovascular disease. As a result, the safety and efficacy of resistive exercise has become more evident. Resistive training appears to be safe and effective for promoting fitness and improving risk factors in patients with coronary heart disease. This review addresses the health and fitness benefits in these patients, the established guidelines regarding inclusion and exclusion into programs, guidelines for resistive training exercise prescriptions, and how these guidelines have evolved in recent years.
