The study had as objective to evaluate the resting energy expenditure (REE) of post-menopause women submitted to a training program with weights. Thirty women, age between 45 and 70 years (FSH > 40 mIUmL), separated in two groups (TG: training n = 15 and CG: control n = 15) were studied. The body mass index (kg/m2) was calculated and the body fat percentage and the muscular mass were determined through bioelectric impedance (BIA). The REE was obtained through indirect calorimetry (respiratory…

The Effect of Sprint Interval Training on Body Composition of Postmenopausal Women.

The SIT intervention increased total lean mass, decreased fat mass, and increased aerobic fitness of postmenopausal women after only 8 h of actual exercise over 8 wk.

Strength training and body composition in middle-age women.

The more days, time, and effort women devote to strength training, the lower their body fat and the higher their fat-free mass tend to be; a significant portion of the differences seems to result from lifters participating in more physical activity than non-lifters.

The data suggest that exercise training does not differentially affect RMR during diet-induced weight loss, and decreases in resting metabolism appear to be proportional to the loss of the metabolically active tissue.

Increased energy requirements and changes in body composition with resistance training in older adults.

Resistance training is an effective way to increase energy requirements, decrease body-fat mass, and maintain metabolically active tissue mass in healthy older people and may be useful as an adjunct to weight-control programs for older adults.

Changes in Energy Balance and Body Composition at Menopause: A Controlled Longitudinal Study

Compared longitudinal changes in resting metabolic rate, body composition, and physical activity in a cohort of healthy premenopausal women who experienced menopause with changes in these variables in a cohorts of women who remained pre menopausal.

Training status, resting metabolic rate, and cardiovascular disease risk in middle-aged men.

Strength training increases resting metabolic rate and norepinephrine levels in healthy 50- to 65-yr-old men.

It is indicated that a heavy-resistance strength-training program increases RMR in healthy older men, perhaps by increasing FFM and sympathetic nervous system activity.

Resting metabolic rate is lower in women than in men.

A lower RMR in women than in men that is independent of differences in body composition and aerobic fitness is supported, following a study examining gender differences in resting metabolic rate across a broad age spectrum.

Resistance training and intra-abdominal adipose tissue in older men and women.

Despite similar decreases in FM after a 25-wk RT program, older women lost significant amounts of IAAT and SAT, whereas the older men did not.

The influence of menopause and hormonal replacement therapy on body cell mass and body fat mass.

Energy Cost of the ACSM Single‐set Resistance Training Protocol

It is concluded that the ACSM single-set, 8-exercise RT protocol is a feasible alternative for achieving moderate-intensity PA, but it is not sufficient to achieve a moderate amount of PA.

Data is presented to show that endurance exercise increases resting metabolic rate in elderly men and women and these changes appear to be sympathetically mediated, and vigorous endurance exercise causes a compensatory decline in energy expenditure during the non-exercising portion of the day.
