Wikipedia

  1. athlete's heart

    Athletic heart syndrome (AHS) is a non-pathological condition commonly seen in sports medicine in which the human heart is enlarged, and the resting heart rate is lower than normal. The athlete's heart is associated with physiological cardiac remodeling as a consequence of repetitive cardiac loading. Athlete's heart is common in athletes who routinely exercise more than an hour a day, and occurs primarily in endurance athletes, though it can occasionally arise in heavy weight trainers. The condition is generally considered benign, but may occasionally hide a serious medical condition, or may even be mistaken for one.

  1. athlete's heart

    Athlete's heart is a term used to describe a condition commonly seen in individuals who engage in long-term intense physical training or activities. It is characterized by structural changes in the heart, including enlargement of the heart (both left and right ventricles) and thickening of the heart walls, along with a slower resting heart rate. These changes are usually harmless and are a normal adaptation of the heart to regular, intensive exercise.
