STROKE VOLUME RESPONSE ALTERED BY TRAINING
Derchak, P. A., Gavin, T. P., & Stager, J. M. (1997). Different predictors of maximal exercise stroke volume in trained and untrained subjects. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 29(5), Supplement abstract 285.
In a study designed to identify the best non-exercising predictor of maximum stroke volume for both trained and untrained individuals, the following were found.
Implication. Training changes the nature and the response level of stroke volume. Since it plateaus at 80% VO2max it is likely to be a more important aspect of the cardiovascular response to training than previously thought.
