The acute (single bout of exercise) and chronic (exercise training) effects of exercise on plasma leptin were investigated in 97 sedentary adult men (n = 51) and women (n = 46) participating in the HERITAGE Family Study. Exercise training consisted of a standardized 20-wk endurance training program performed in the laboratory on a computer-controlled cycle ergometer. Maximal oxygen uptake, body composition assessed by hydrostatic weighing, and fasting insulin level were also measured before and… CONTINUE READING
