In brief: Big picture

Elite athletes have higher percentage of ck-mb.
The burning question is "do you have heart disease?" this is better settled with a troponin series and an electrocardiogram if the history is suggestive.

In brief: CPK

Ck is a polycomponent muscle enzyme.
The ck mb is the muscle-brain part of ck total. That is why the lower value for mb. The lab normals would tell whether these are elevated or not. Elevations are usually from muscle damage and the mb is found in heart.
