You spend hours focused on training for your favorite activity. You regularly push yourself beyond your comfort zone. You are one of the elite athletes of your sport and should be the paradigm of excellent health, yet why are you in a hospital being treated for a heart condition? That is exactly what happened to cyclist Leonard Zinn who nearly died as the result of a heart that literally went haywire.
Yes, we know that exercise is good for us, but is there such a thing as too much exercise? Where is the point where exercise makes the transition from an activity that promotes health and longevity to one that could be fatal? On this episode of All About Fitness, we are joined by cardiac electrophysiologist, amateur cyclist and now author, Dr. John Mandrola to discuss a book he co-wrote about how too much exercise effects the heart, The Haywire Heart. Dr. Mandrola is able to share his insights both as an athlete and an expert on cardiac health for a fun, insightful and educational conversation about how your heart adapts to exercise and when too much might be too much.
If you are an endurance athlete and want to learn more about how your heart adapts to the stresses of exercise, The Haywire Heart is a MUST READ - follow this link to pick up a copy!
