This study sought to study the effect of high intensity aerobic interval endurance training on peak stroke volume and maximal strength training on mechanical efficiency in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. 8 CAD patients (age 61.4±3.7 years) trained 30 interval training sessions with 4×4 min intervals at 85-95% of peak heart rate while 10 CAD patients (age 66.5±5.5 years) trained 24 sessions of maximal horizontal leg press. In the interval training group peak stroke volume increased significantly by 23% from 94.1±23.0 mL · beat (-1) to 115.8±22.4 mL · beat (-1) (p
