Abstract

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a cardiovascular disease where atherosclerotic plaque build-up attenuates blood flow to the lower extremity, and postmenopausal women are specifically at a higher risk for PAD, in part due to the hormonal and metabolic changes that occur at the menopause transition. It is crucial to combat the risk factors associated with PAD with appropriate lifestyle interventions in this population, such as exercise.

The purpose of this study was to elucidate the effects of a 12-week resistance band training program in obese postmenopausal women with PAD.

Postmenopausal women (n=36) were recruited and randomly assigned to a resistance band exercise training group (EX, n=18) or a control group (CON, n=18). The EX group performed a resistance band exercise training program for 12 weeks. Levels of blood glucose, insulin, homeostatic model of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), blood lipids, anthropometrics, and blood pressure (BP) were assessed after 12 weeks.

There were significant group by time interactions (ppp

The present study indicates that 12 weeks of resistance band exercise training may be an effective intervention to combat insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia, obesity, and high BP in this population, potentially decreasing the risks for PAD development.
