|Lee et al., 2010||Cycle ergometer—VO2max, Astrand protocol||Insulin resistance, visfatin||N = 38 Mean age 16.7, F, obese and normal||A 12-week to study the effect of a physical activity program on insulin and receptors. No independent analysis of the effects of exercise and diet on improvements in risk factors.|
|Fitness improved, along with a decrease in plasma visfatin and insulin resistance.
|Nourry et al., 2005||Cycle ergometer—incremental exercise/VO2max||Body mass, fat mass (FM)||Pulmonary function||N = 24 Age 10, M and F, nonathletic||Examined effect of 8-week training program on resting and exercising lung function.|
|Intervention led to enhanced resting pulmonary function and VO2 max, but both control and intervention groups had an increased in body mass and no change in FM.
