- Effects of aerobic and resistive exercise training on glucose disposal and skeletal muscle metabolism in older menCynthia M Ferrara
Division of Gerontology, University of Maryland, Baltimore, and Baltimore Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center GRECC, USA
J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 61:480-7. 2006..We hypothesized that aerobic (AEX) or resistive (RT) exercise training would result in comparable improvements in glucose disposal in older men, but that there would be different metabolic adaptations in skeletal muscle...
- Sex differences in insulin action and body fat distribution in overweight and obese middle-aged and older men and womenCynthia M Ferrara
Division of Gerontology, University of Maryland, Baltimore, and Baltimore VA Medical Center, Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center, Baltimore, MD 21201, USA
Appl Physiol Nutr Metab 33:784-90. 2008..This difference in insulin sensitivity is not explained by abdominal fat distribution, therefore other metabolic factors contribute to the sex differences in insulin sensitivity...
- Differences in adipose tissue metabolism between postmenopausal and perimenopausal womenCynthia M Ferrara
Department of Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine, and the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center, Baltimore VA Medical Center, Baltimore, Maryland 21201, USA
J Clin Endocrinol Metab 87:4166-70. 2002..The lower lipolysis and higher AT-LPL activity in postmenopausal women may predispose them to gain body fat after menopause...
- Metabolic effects of the addition of resistive to aerobic exercise in older menCynthia M Ferrara
Department of Physical Therapy, University of Massachusetts Lowell, Lowell, MA 01854 5124, USA
Int J Sport Nutr Exerc Metab 14:73-80. 2004..In conclusion, the addition of resistive exercise training to an existing aerobic exercise program may improve insulin sensitivity in overweight, older men, and thus prevent the development of type 2 diabetes...
