In two groups of healthy men aged 20-22 years the left ventricular systolic time intervals were evaluated by the method of Weissler et al. during frequently repeated workloads and restitution. Each exercise was carried out on a Zimmerman cycle ergometer during 10 minutes, and was repeated five times at 50-minutes intervals from 8.00 o'clock a.m. Group I (15 subjects) performed the exercise at a stable workload which produced during the first exercise heart rate acceleration to 170/min, but gave a successive further rise in the heart rate during consecutive exercises. Group II (11 subjects) performed all exercises to a stable rise in heart rate to 170/min with decreasing workloads. It was found that successive exercises caused in both groups a similar decrease of the left ventricular ejection time index (LVETI), pre-ejection period (PEP), isovolumetric contraction time (ICT), and decrease of the PEP/LVET index (p less than 0.05). Each successive exercise began with higher values of LVETI, PEP, ICT and PEP/LVET than the first one. No significant differences were found in the values of left ventricular systolic time intervals in both groups (p greater than 0.05). The duration of restitution of normal values of the left ventricular systolic time intervals after successive exercises was not changing but the tolerance of these exercises measured by heart rate increase and work performed decreased successively.
