“Resistance Training and Cardiometabolic Health”
This study will investigate the relationship between resistance training load and repetitions on cardiometabolic outcomes. The primary objective of this clinical trial is to determine whether high load or low load resistance exercise training affects arterial stiffness in overweight or obese men and women. Our secondary objectives are to investigate the effects of high and low load RT on vascular function, cardiac structure, and markers of insulin sensitivity. Finally, we are going to preliminarily explore the effects of resistance training on intestinal bacteria.
High Load/Low Rep Resistance Training
Participants will be prescribed High Load/Low Rep resistance training.
Low Load/High Rep Resistance Training
Participants will be prescribed Low Load/High Rep resistance training.
