Starling (1886–1927) of England conducted the research (nonexercise design) in 1914 leading to Starling’s “law of the heart,” Bainbridge was the first to offer an explanation, which over the years continues to create discussions among physiologists. He stated that “the powerful heart of the athlete, while obeying the law of the heart, is able to respond to a moderate increase of venous inflow by a much larger output per beat” (6, p. 54). The effect of exercise on the size of the heart has intrigued men of science since the time of Harvey.

After graduation, he studied with Bernard in France, served as a professor at the medical school in Buffalo, and became renowned while serving on the physiology faculty at Bellevue Hospital Medical College in New York. The 1875 publication of A Textbook of Human Physiology, which had four editions, was likely his most influential text because it was extensively used in the medical schools that were educating many of the physicians that assumed teaching and administrative responsibilities in the institutions that were offering exercise physiology courses in physical education departments (98).

Secretions from the skin, kidney, and liver were also facilitated by exercise. However, physiologic consequences arose when organs associated with these secretions were unable to perform their functions, in part, because of a lack of muscular activity. The Publications of Austin Flint Jr. Although Byford introduced the terms exercise physiology and described its physiologic foundations, it was Austin Flint Jr. (1853–1914), a physician whose publications promoted and enhanced its scientific entrance (Fig.
