Clinical Trial

Mitochondrial Remodeling After Exercise

Study Description

Mitochondrial Remodeling After Exercise

Regulation of mitochondrial health in overweight and obese individuals may be impaired. The purpose of this study is to identify impairments in regulation of mitochondrial health within skeletal muscle and to determine if short-term exercise training (2-weeks) can reverse such impairments. The investigator's hypothesis is that pathways that serve to degrade poorly functioning mitochondria in overweight and obese individuals are down-regulated, but that short-term exercise training can restore these pathways to improve skeletal muscle mitochondrial function.
