ACSM's From Around the Field: Grip Strength, Resistance Training, and Type 2 Diabetes: What to Know
February 27, 2023 | 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST
This presentation will cover how low muscular strength is related to increased cardiometabolic risk, including type 2 diabetes. The use of normalized grip strength cut-points to predict increased cardiometabolic risk and type 2 diabetes in different age groups will also be presented. Lastly, an analysis of the effectiveness of acute and chronic resistance training in people with type 2 diabetes will be discussed.
After participation, the attendee should be able to:
1. Discuss the relationship between muscular strength and cardiometabolic risk, including type 2 diabetes
2. Explain how normalized grip strength can be used to predict cardiometabolic risk in adolescents and young adults and type 2 diabetes in apparently healthy adults.
3. Examine the effectiveness of a single bout and long-term use of resistance training to improve cardiometabolic risk factors in people with type 2 diabetes.
