Clinical studies indicate that dynamic or endurance training is more beneficial to cardiovascular functioning than is static or isometric training. Previously sedentary patients show a noticeable improvement in maximal oxygen uptake, heart rate response to exercise, and skeletal muscle function. Though the prognostic implications of these changes are still unclear, some relevant conclusions can nevertheless be drawn.
