Combined aerobic, resistance exercise maximized positive outcomes in obese adolescents

September 29, 2014

Obese adolescents who participated in aerobic, resistance or combined exercise decreased their total body fat and waist circumference, according to study findings in JAMA Pediatrics.

Ronald J. Sigal, MD, MPH, of the University of Calgary in Alberta, and colleagues randomly assigned 304 previously inactive children to participate in aerobic training, resistance training or combined aerobic and resistance training for 22 weeks. Study participants were aged 14 to 18 years and had a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for age and sex or at or above the 85th percentile plus diabetes or a cardiovascular risk factor. Before participating in training interventions, children completed a run-in period in which they performed 15 to 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at 65% of measured maximum heart rate and seven resistance exercises four times a week for 4 weeks.
