Athletic Heart Syndrome


Underwriting and Case Studies

Athletic Heart Syndrome

The changes that occur with an athletic heart, which are also referred to as cardiac remodeling, are not felt to be pathologic and so a true athletic heart usually should not be associated with an increased mortality risk.

Strength training (also called static, isometric, anaerobic or power exercise), which includes wrestling and weight lifting, exposes the heart to large increases in blood pressure.
