Abstract: Studies have previously observed left ventricular twisting (LVT) in relation to both diastolic and systolic function. Yet these studies primarily monitor LVT during different exercise and intensities and rest and have not investigated the influence of EDV. This study aims to investigate LVT and EDV in a three minute recovery phase and a six minute recovery phase stage of recovery after sub-maximal exercise in trained and untrained populations. The results of this study show that there were no significant differences in EDV between the high aerobic fitness group and the moderate aerobic fitness group, yet within the moderate exercise group there were significant differences between exercise and the 3 minute recovery stage and the 6 minute recovery stage. The findings of this study conclude that a high aerobic fitness can lead lower LV twist and increase EDV. The findings of this study can be improved and further considerations could be noted in terms of further research in the future
