About the thesis
Menopause changes the hormonal milieu drastically. To what extent these changes alter cardiometabolic risk factors and cardiac adaptations to aerobic training is still not entirely clear.
In this thesis, these aspects were addressed in a large exercise training intervention study involving late pre- and recently postmenopausal women.
