Exercise training is recommended to patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) and reduced ejection fraction at a class 1 evidence level. Currently the 'dose' of exercise (dose being both volume and intensity) still remains uncertain and the best form of aerobic exercise training has not been defined. Guidelines commonly use heart rate (HR) as a target factor for both moderate continuous and interval training exercises. However, exercise training guided by HR can be limited in CHF patients due to chronotropic incompetence and beta-blocker treatment. In our study, we systematically addressed the above issues by applying a training method that takes into account both the volume and intensity of exercise on an individual basis. This method is referred to as individual TRaining IMPulses (TRIMPi). In this review, we summarise a series of investigations that used TRIMPi and different exercise forms to quantify the optimum training load in CHF patients. This review also highlights the way TRIMPi and the individual exercise dose affects cardiorespiratory, metabolic and autonomic cardiac adaptations.
