I'm a big proponant of exercise - have run a dozen marathons, work out nearly every day...but...

Some people are 'immune' to exercise

10:45 02 December 04

Public-health campaigns regularly plug exercise as a sure-fire way to avoid an early grave. But that message may be too simplistic. For an unhappy few, even quite strenuous exercise may have no effect on their fitness or their risk of developing diseases like diabetes.

“There is astounding variation in the response to exercise. The vast majority will benefit in some way, but there will be a minority who will not benefit at all,” says Claude Bouchard of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, US.

At the Australian Health and Medical Research Congress in Sydney, Australia, last week Bouchard reported the results of a study assessing the role of genes in fitness and health changes in response to exercise.

In the study, 742 people from 213 families were put through a strict 20-week endurance training programme. The volunteers had not taken regular physical activity for the previous six months. Exercise on stationary bikes was gradually increased so that by the last six weeks the volunteers were exercising for 50 minutes three times a week at 75% of the maximum output they were capable of before the study.

Previous reports indicated that there are huge variations in “trainability” between subjects. For example, the team found that training improved maximum oxygen consumption, a measure of a person’s ability to perform work, by 17% on average.

But the most trainable volunteers gained over 40%, and the least trainable showed no improvement at all. Similar patterns were seen with cardiac output, blood pressure, heart rate and other markers of fitness.

Slogging away

Bouchard reported that the impact of training on insulin sensitivity – a marker of risk for diabetes and heart disease – also varied. It improved in 58% of the volunteers following exercise, but in 42% it showed no improvement or, in a few cases, may have got worse.

“It’s negative, but it’s true. Some people slog away and don’t get any improvement,” says Kathryn North of the Institute of Neuromuscular Research at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead in Sydney, Australia

I just started a 6 day a week aerobic program, 4 weeks ago. Gained a lot of weight since college. Will report results. Have lost maybe 2 lbs. I sure hope I am not in that "untrainable" group!!!

I have always liked Neil Armstrong's statement about excerise.

It went something like:

"The human heart has a finite number of beats and I will be damned if I am going to waste any of them exercising."
