Underdosing, Overdosing, and Structural Barriers — Exercise is Medicine

from Population Health

From Aug. 14: This article features research by ACSM member and fellow Ben Levine.

Dr. Benjamin Levine was only 10 years old when the famous Dallas Bedrest and Training Study took place. Five young men were put to bed for three weeks and then put through endurance training for two months.

“Almost everything that we know about the response to deconditioning and conditioning began with that study,” says Levine, Professor of Internal Medicine/Cardiology and Distinguished Professor of Exercise Sciences at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

Thirty years later, Levine did a follow-up study with the same five men. The new study asked what happened to these men from 30 years of aging, and it turned out that not a single one of these volunteers was in worse shape 30 years later than they were after three weeks of bedrest when they were in their 20's. more
