Moderate Muscle Strength Can Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
A recent study, published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings, finds that people with moderate muscle strength, achieved with the help of resistance exercise, can have a considerably lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
During the study, the researchers examined data of 4,681 adults whose age was between 20 and 100 years and none of them had diabetes at the beginning of the study called the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study. Having analyzed the received data, the researchers concluded that people who had moderate muscle mass had a 32% lower risk of type 2 diabetes.
Study co-author Angelique Brellenthin comments: “We want to encourage small amounts of resistance training and it doesn't need to be complicated. You can get a good resistance workout with squats, planks, or lunges. Then, as you build strength, you can consider adding free weights or weight machines.”
