Weight Training Reduces Risk of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Men | Heart diseases and Heart Conditions | Scoop.it

Take Home Message: Physicians have recommended a MINIMUM of 150 minues of exercise weekly for diabetic risk reduction but the role resistance training or weight lifting is not certain.  In this study, weight training was associated with a significantly lower risk of Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM), independent of aerobic exercise. Combined weight training & aerobic exercise conferred a greater benefit.

+++++++++++++++++

Association of weight training with risk of T2DM in US men & to assess the influence of combining weight training and aerobic exercise, a prospective cohort study of 32 002 men from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study from 1990-2008. Weekly time spent on weight training & aerobic exercise (including brisk walking, jogging, running, bicycling, swimming, tennis, squash, and calisthenics/rowing) was obtained from questionnaires at baseline and biennially during follow-up. 

During 508 332 person-years of follow-up (18 years)

=> 2278 new cases of T2DM

=> dose-response relationship: increasing time spent on weight training or aerobic exercise and lower risk of T2DM (P < .001 for trend)

=> Engaging in weight training or aerobic exercise for at least 150 minutes per week was independently associated with a lower risk of T2DM of 34% (95% CI, 7%-54%) and 52% (95% CI, 45%-58%), respectively.

+> Men who engaged in aerobic exercise & weight training for at least 150 minutes per week had the greatest reduction in T2DM risk (59%; 95% CI, 39%-73%)

Good point Kirk, maintaining some perspective on your training volume is very important. Sadly some people get carried away and start moving toward the "more is better" end of the spectrum.
