Resistance training reduces steatosis in NAFLD patients

August 4, 2015

In a clinical trial, patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease who underwent resistance training had improved hepatic fat over time, indicating this type of exercise could be used as a complement to treating the disease, according to study data.

Researchers randomly assigned 82 patients with NAFLD to undergo 40 minutes of resistance training (RT; n = 44) three times a week or home stretching (n = 38) for 3 months. RT included leg press, chest press, seated rowing, latissimus pull down etc. with 8 to 12 repetitions and 3 sets for each exercise. Overall, 36 patients in the RT group and 33 in the stretching group completed the 3 month follow-up period and were included in the final analysis.
