2017 Keynote Lectures
Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Physical Activity and Cardiovascular Health: Clarifying the Risk-Protection Paradox
Barry A. Franklin, Ph.D., FACSM

Royal Oak, Michigan
- Thursday, April 6, 5:30PM
This lecture will summarize the relations between physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, surgical outcomes and mortality, with specific reference to practical implications for health-fitness professionals. In addition, the presentation will compare moderate exercise versus high-intensity interval training, and the added effectiveness (if any) of extreme exercise on mortality. Finally, I plan to discuss ‘at risk activities’ for individuals with known or suspected cardiovascular disease, and provide recommendations to reduce the risk of exercise-related acute cardiac events.
