PurposeResistance exercise is promoted in older adults for its ability to improve muscle mass, strength and, hence, in reducing falls. However, its effects on blood lipids and CVD risk are less well established, particularly in this age group. This study aimed to investigate whether a 1-year resistance exercise program improves lipid profile and chylomicron concentration in older men.MethodsParticipants were randomised to either three, 1 h resistance training sessions per week (RE) or an active… CONTINUE READING
