PURPOSE: While left ventricular (LV) adaptation to exercise training has been the focus of 'athlete's heart' research to-date, information regarding right ventricular (RV) adaptation is sparse, due to its complex structure and imaging technique limitations. This is the first prospective, longitudinal randomized study exploring the impact of endurance (E) versus resistance (R) exercise training on RV morphology using MRI. METHODS: Twenty-three young untrained males completed a randomly assigned E (n=10) or R training protocol (n=13) over 6-months that was progressive, supervised and intensive. Repeated measures included body composition, aerobic fitness, muscular strength, RV morphology (MRI) and function (speckle tracking echocardiography). RESULTS: Total lean mass increased in both groups (E: +1.3 kg; 95%CI: 0.3,2.3; R: +2.1 kg; 95%CI: 1.5,3.2) while aerobic fitness significantly improved in E (+3.7; 95%CI: 0.9,6.5) but not in R training. Strength improved in both groups, but to a greater extent in R-trained subjects (+53.8 kg; 95%CI: 46.7,60.9 vs. +35.3 kg; 95%CI: 27.3,43.4). After training, RV mass increased by 2.7g (95%CI: -0.4,5.8) following E and by 1.4 g (95%CI: -1.3,4.1) following R training. RV end-diastolic volume increased after E (+13.8 mL; 95%CI: 1.9,25.7) with a smaller change after R exercise (+3.9 mL; 95%CI: -6.5,14.3). The LV-to-RV mass ratio and myocardial function did not change in either group. CONCLUSIONS: Mild morphological RV adaptation occurred following 6-months of intense supervised E and R exercise training. The degree of change was slightly but not significantly larger after E training. RV changes mirrored those observed in the LV.
