Abstract

Background: We aimed to determine the role of skeletal muscle mitochondrial ATP production rate
(MAPR) in relation to exercise tolerance after resistance training (RT) in chronic heart failure (CHF).
Methods and Results: Thirteen CHF patients (New York Heart Association functional class 2.3 ± 0.5;
Left ventricular ejection fraction 26 ± 8%; age 70 ± 8 years) underwent testing for peak total body oxygen
consumption (V02pea0, and resting vastus lateralis muscle biopsy. Patients were then randomly allocated
to 11 weeks of RT (n = 7), or continuance of usual care (C; n = 6), after which testing was
repeated. Muscle samples were analyzed for MAPR, metabolic enzyme activity, and capillary density.
V02peak and MAPR in the presence of the pyruvate and malate (P+M) substrate combination, representing
carbohydrate metabolism, increased in RT (P < .05) and decreased in C (P < .05), with a significant
difference between groups (V02peab P = .005; MAPR, P = .03). There was a strong correlation between
the change in MAPR and the change in peak total body oxygen consumption (V02peak) over the study (r =
0.875; P < .0001), the change in MAPR accounting for 70% of the change in V02peak'
Conclusions: These findings suggest that mitochondrial ATP production is a major determinant of aerobic
capacity in CHF patients and can be favorably altered by muscle strengthening exercise. (J Cardiac
