from By Thomas H. Morville, M.D., B.S.

Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect positions or policies of ACSM.

Thomas H. Morville, M.D., B.S., is a Ph.D. student working in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. He is a medical doctor and holds a bachelor’s degree in sport science. His current research areas include aerobic fitness, muscular strength and metabolic regulation in relation to cholesterol-lowering medication.

This commentary presents Dr. Morville’s views on the topic of a research article that he and his colleagues had pubished in the February 2017 issue of
Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE).
