Resistance exercise, such as lifting weights, using resistance bands, or using weight machines, is another essential part of any diabetic training plan.
This exercise is traditionally used to build muscles mass and strength. Resistance exercise has many benefits similar to aerobic exercise such as: increasing insulin sensitivity, lowering blood pressure, and improving your lipid levels. Resistance exercise will also improve overall cardiac health as the heart and blood vessels grow stronger. Just like aerobic exercise, resistance training can burn hundreds of calories in a single session, making it an effective tool for weight loss and management.
