OBJECTIVE To determine if basal metabolic rate (BMR) could be elevated in older women undertaking a program of progressive resistance exercise of up to 52-weeks duration. DESIGN Randomized controlled trial with subjects assigned to either a control (CO), high-intensity (HI), or low-intensity (LO) training group for 15 weeks. BMR, body composition, energy intake and expenditure, and muscle strength were assessed at baseline and after 15 weeks. Subjects were encouraged to continue in their… CONTINUE READING
