Electrocardiogram and Cardiac Events

In the last few years, several studies have outlined the distinguishing features of the three most common genetic variants of LQTS (LQT1, LQT2, LQT3), while the low prevalence of the other genetic variants so far prevented a precise characterization of the associated phenotypes.

Gene-specific EGC features have been initially described by Moss et al.[19] and subsequently refined by Zhang et al.[20] Schwartz et al.[21] have provided evidence that LQT1 patients present 97% of cardiac events during physical activity as opposed to LQT3 who present the majority of cardiac events at rest. Furthermore, it has been proposed that auditory stimuli and arousal are a relatively specific trigger for LQT2 patients, whereas swimming is a predisposing setting for cardiac events in LQT1 patients.[22,23]

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
