ABSTRACT: STATINS ARE A CLASS OF LIPID-LOWERING DRUGS THAT CAN PRODUCE A NUMBER OF ADVERSE EFFECTS, SUCH AS MUSCLE MYOPATHY. THE INCIDENCE OF MYOPATHY INCREASES IN STATIN USERS WHO ALSO EXERCISE. THEREFORE, EXERCISE PROFESSIONALS SHOULD BE FAMILIAR WITH THE INTERACTIONS OF STATINS AND EXERCISE TO DESIGN SAFE AND EFFECTIVE PROGRAMS.
