A systematic review of the effects of strength training in patients with fibromyalgia: clinical outcomes and design considerations
TLDR
Current evidence demonstrates that ST is beneficial and can be used to treat FM, with increased functional capacity and quality of life.
Elevated Perceived Exertion in People with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
A large effect indicating higher RPE in patients than controls is observed, suggesting people with ME/CFS and FM perceive aerobic exercise as more effortful than healthy adults, but the exact causes are unclear.
Acute effect of strength training on pain in women with fibromyalgia: A brief report.
TLDR
It is suggested that there is no harmful effect on the pain of women with FM after an acute session of ST, and more studies on the subject are needed to help understand pain in patients with FM.
Exercise and Chronic Pain.
TLDR
Effective exercise regimens include education and cognitive restructuring to promote behavioral activation and reconceptualization of what pain means, with the goal of gradually reversing the vicious cycle of pain, inertia, sedentary behavior, and worsening disability.
Changes in inflammatory plasma proteins from patients with chronic pain associated with treatment in an interdisciplinary multimodal rehabilitation program – an explorative multivariate pilot study
TLDR
There is a need for larger and more strictly controlled studies of IMMRP with respect to inflammatory markers in blood, as this explorative pilot study found that 12 substances, mainly pro-inflammatory, decreased after IMMRp.
Effects of Physical Exercise on the Expression of MicroRNAs: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
It can be observed acute and chronic effects of physical exercises on the expression of several miRNAs in healthy subjects, athletes, young, elderly and in patients with congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease, diabetes mellitus type 2 associated with morbid obesity, prediabetic, and patients with intermittent claudication.
Exercise and movement in musculoskeletal pain: a double-edged problem
TLDR
Conflicting results emerge between absolutely convincing basic science research confirming important effects induced by movement and exercise on pain and substantial poor low evidence level from clinical research as stated by almost all systematic reviews.
Relationship between handgrip strength, peripheral muscle strength, and respiratory muscle endurance in women with fibromyalgia: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
Women with FM present with reduced muscle strength in the upper and lower limbs, as well as lower respiratory muscle resistance, according to a cross-sectional study evaluated women with clinical diagnosis of FM.

A Systematic Review of the Acute Effects of Exercise on Immune and Inflammatory Indices in Untrained Adults
TLDR
Although responses to CRP are inconsistent, a single bout of exercise can increase the activity of both circulating IL-6 and neutrophil counts in untrained adults and may be linked to a range of health benefits.
Does volume of physical exercise have an effect on depression in patients with fibromyalgia?
The Role of IL-8 in Patients With Fibromyalgia: A Prospective Longitudinal Study of 6 Months
TLDR
It is suggested that IL-8 level contributes in patients with FM whose pain intensity and back function can be improved under influence of multidisciplinary pain therapy without need of an anti-IL-8 therapy.
Fibromyalgia: Anti-Inflammatory and Stress Responses after Acute Moderate Exercise
TLDR
It is shown that single sessions of moderate cycling can improve the inflammatory status in FM patients, reaching values close to the situation of aged-matched HW at their basal status.
Muscle strengthening activities and fibromyalgia: a review of pain and strength outcomes.
Integrated Review of the Association of Cytokines With Fibromyalgia and Fibromyalgia Core Symptoms
TLDR
Biobehavioral research focused on understanding the relationship of FMS with cytokines may lead to a better understanding of this complex syndrome and contribute to the development of interventions for symptom management that address not only the symptom manifestation but also a biological mediator of symptoms.
Aquatic exercise improves the monocyte pro‐ and anti‐inflammatory cytokine production balance in fibromyalgia patients
TLDR
The anti‐inflammatory effect of the exercise program was also corroborated by a decrease in the circulating CRP concentration, and exercise also improved the health‐related quality of life of FM patients.
Cytokine patterns in fibromyalgia and their correlation with clinical manifestations.
TLDR
The higher levels of cytokines found in FM patients suggest the presence of an inflammatory response system (IRS) and highlight a parallel between the clinical symptoms and biochemical data, which support the hypothesis that cytokines may play a role in the clinical features of fibromyalgia.
Proinflammatory cytokine levels in fibromyalgia patients are independent of body mass index
TLDR
Analysis in FM patients of BMI as a covariate of proinflammatory cytokines levels showed that serum TNF-α and IL-6 levels are independent of BMI.
Strengthening Exercises Improve Symptoms and Quality of Life but Do Not Change Autonomic Modulation in Fibromyalgia: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Strengthening exercises show greater and more rapid improvements in pain and strength than flexibility exercises, and this observation suggests that changes in autonomic modulation are not a target to be clinically achieved in fibromyalgia.
