Descriptive analysis of resistance exercise and metabolic syndrome

, : Descriptive analysis of resistance exercise and metabolic syndrome. Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome 6(1): 42-47

Resistance exercise (RE) is an important mode of physical activity in the management of metabolic syndrome (MetS). However, little is known about the patterns of RE participation among U.S. adults with and without MetS. Utilizing data from 1999 26 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, we examined the association(s) between MetS and RE in a representative sample (n =7432) of the U.S. adult population. U.S. adults with MetS were found to be approximately 5% less likely to report engaging in RE compared to U.S. adults without MetS. Across all demographic categories those who did not meet the criteria for MetS reported engaging in significantly greater levels of RE compared to their counterparts with MetS. Furthermore, a potential inverse dose-response relationship was seen for engaging in RE and the prevalence of MetS. In a diverse representative sample, significantly fewer U.S. adults with MetS report engaging in RE compared to adults without MetS. Engaging in two or more days per week of RE may attenuate MetS prevalence and risk estimates in U.S. adults.
