Abstract

ABSTRACT: IMPLEMENTING A RESISTANCE TRAINING PROGRAM FOR CLIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES POSES SOME DIFFICULTIES, BUT WITH THE PROPER DESIGN, THESE CLIENTS CAN ATTAIN SIGNIFICANT HEALTH AND FITNESS BENEFITS. RESISTANCE TRAINING PROGRAMS SHOULD BE PROGRESSIVE IN INTENSITY AND INDIVIDUALIZED FOR EACH CLIENT TO IMPROVE GLYCEMIC CONTROL, LEAN BODY MASS, AND STRENGTH.
