AIM Exercise effects in subjects with HIV/AIDS are not entirely understood. The study aimed to investigate the effects of a supervised exercise program on the physical fitness and immunological function of HIV-infected subjects. METHODS Twenty-seven highly active antiretroviral therapy treated HIV-infected patients (age: 45±2 years; CD4-T: 21.3±2.2%) were(More)
Training frequency is an important resistance training variable, but its relative contribution to strength and functional performance (FP) gains in senior populations is not yet well defined. The present study investigated the effect of different resistance training frequencies on the strength and FP in active women aged 60 years and older. A total of 48(More)
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging was performed on 14 junior elite Olympic weight lifters and 14 controls (means +/- Se, age = 18.4 +/- 0.5 and 17.8 +/- 0.4 years, weight = 76.5 +/- 3.6 and 78.8 +/- 3.3 kg, % fat = 6.5% +/- 0.8% and 11.5% +/- 1.7%, respectively). Controls were individually matched to the lifters to within 2 years of age and 2.5 kg of body(More)

It is speculated that exercise training decreases resting levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and C-reactive protein (CRP); reduces body mass and leptin (LP); and increases adiponectin (AD) and insulin sensitivity. This systematic review analyzed the effectiveness of resistance training (RT) longitudinal clinical studies on AD, LP, CRP and(More)
