Improving contractile ability of the myocardium; pulse rate at rest is reduced to 40-45 strikes in 1 minute. Often develops working hypertrophy of the heart muscle with a rich network of capillaries, the so-called "athlete's heart", which has a high efficiency; stroke volume of the heart comes to 200 ml, minute - to 50 l or more.
