About

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of resistance training on sarcopenic obesity in older women.

Full description

To examine the effects of resistance training on sarcopenic obesity in older women, a representative sample of older women from Brasília, Brazil (n>244 subjects), will be recruited and invited to undergo body composition measurement using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. Moreover, the Sarcopenic Obesity index and isokinetic strength evaluations will be performed. It will be a single-blind randomized, controlled 24-week clinical trial, in which experimental group will receive a progressive resistance training program, meanwhile control group will receive instructions to maintain their lifestyle habits. Randomization will be conducted by computer-generated list in blocks of 10. Additionally, body composition, strength assessment, and sarcopenic index will collected and compared after the intervention period.

244 participants in 2 patient groups

Control Group
No Intervention group
Description:
These participants will be instructed to maintain their habits during 24 weeks. Before and after the aforementioned period, they will be asked to perform body composition and strength assessments, using DXA and isokinetic dynamometer, respectively.
Experimental group
Experimental group
Description:
Participants from the experimental group will assign to the resistance training program undergo physician screening at rest and under cardiopulmonary exercise test conditions before starting the program. Following a three-week familiarization process, participants undergo one repetition maximum (1-RM) testing for each of the exercises of the training program. This procedure intended to determine exercise load and will be systematically repeated in four-week intervals. Volunteers will train thrice per week during 24 weeks. The training program will involve the following exercises: chest press, lat pulldown, knee extension, hamstrings curl, leg press, hip abduction.
Treatment:
Behavioral: Resistance Training
