Role of Resistance Exercise in Cardiology.

Resistance exercise is a form of exercise that increases muscular strength and endurance by exercising a muscle or muscle group against external resistance. Resistance exercises have an important potential in preventing cardiac diseases, increasing treatment efficiency, and improving quality of life. In spite of the fact that the vast majority of cardiology research to date has focused on aerobic exercise, an increasing number of studies on resistance exercise have been published in the past few years. Although resistance exercise was combined with aerobic exercise in most of these studies, its isolated efficacy was also examined. In conditions such as coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, and cardiac rehabilitation, resistance exercise (RE) is regarded as a potentially beneficial approach. In addition to interventional and medical treatments, resistance exercise can also be considered as a cost-effective and sustainable method. The effects of resistance exercise on a variety of cardiovascular conditions were investigated in this evaluation of the literature.
