Abstract

The Special Populations column provides a brief overview of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) and the potential benefits resistance training (RT) can have on preventing and managing MetS. Current recommendations for RT and MetS are consistent with the recommendations for healthy adults (2). Because there is no consensus on specific RT recommendations for MetS at the present time, recommendations are general and may need modifying, based on the person’s abilities, health condition, time constraints, etc. The Table summarizes general recommended RT variables for MetS.
