IPE 2022 | Extraordinary Exercise and Cardiovascular Health: Can there be too Much of a Good Thing?


By Benjamin Levine; Laura DeFina; William Cornwell; Guido Claessen

Renowned experts from around the world talk about the controversy surrounding the health benefits or injury of extraordinary exercise.

  • Laura DeFina from the Cooper Institute in Dallas, Texas, tackles the issue of coronary calcification in individuals who perform very large amounts of physical activity and how that influences risk of cardiovascular events. 
  • Bill Cornwell from the University of Colorado presents novel data about the performance of the right ventricle during exercise, which has been described as the “vulnerable” ventricle with the potential for injury and induction of cardiomyopathy; and
  • Guido Claessen from Leuven, Belgium, presents his work about the risk of atrial fibrillation in high-volume athletes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn whether the dose of exercise influences the development of increased amounts of coronary calcium, and the implications of this process for cardiovascular risk in high volume exercisers;
  2. Understand the unique hemodynamics of the right ventricle during exercise, with the goal of determining why the right ventricle may be uniquely vulnerable to injury; and
  3. Understand the mechanism underlying the increased risk of atrial fibrillation in Masters athletes and high-volume exercisers.
