Resistance exercise made easy

Resistance training, sometimes called weight training, uses resistance to increase the strength, tone, and overall health of your muscles. It is especially important for people with diabetes because active muscles help improve blood sugar (glucose) control while exercising and for one to two days afterwards. Resistance exercise also helps you maintain a healthy weight, increases your strength and energy, and helps you with daily activities such as bathing, shopping, household chores, and playing with your children. Ready to add some resistance exercises to your fitness routine?
