Brief Summary:
Physical exercise elicits beneficial changes in the body. These concern physical performance but also improvements in virtually all known risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Yet, the extent of individual benefit differs considerably even within homogenous groups and the prediction of individual training effectiveness is not yet possible. This study aims to find predictors of individual training effectiveness.
