In the past, little attention has been paid to the influence of exercise on the coronary circulation in the experimental animal and even less in man. Metabolic and hemodynamic investigations suggested that there might be a different energy expenditure in the trained and untrained human heart under the stress of heavy exercise. Therefore, a comparative study was designed to evaluate the effects of submaximal work load on the perfusion of the healthy heart in 6 athletes (22 – 23 years) and 5 untrained students (23 – 26 years). They were selected according to their state of health and their performance capacity. All subjects were in sinus rhythm and were not premedicated.
