Active Comparator: endurance training
supervised endurance training
Behavioral: Endurance training
supervised endurance training. Three sessions per week in three months.
Other Name: Aerobic training
Experimental: strength training
Supervised strength training
Behavioral: strength training
Supervised strength training. Three sessions per week in three months.
Exercise training is well documented as part of effective treatment for type 2-diabetes patients. Endurance training has been suggested as the most suitable form of exercise. There are reasons to believe that strength training also has a positive effect. However, comparisons of endurance training and strength training regimes are limited.
Therefore we randomized 26 men with type 2-diabetes to either an endurance training group or a strength training group. Both groups exercised three sessions per week for three months. The training was supervised.
