Weightlifting and Metabolic Syndrome
Weightlifting and Metabolic Syndrome
When an individual is diagnosed with metabolic syndrome (MSyn), he or she is suffering from multiple cardiovascular and metabolic risk factors for disease. These physiological agitators function synergistically to increase the risk for numerous health complications and early mortality. Some of the major health consequences include type II diabetes, coronary artery disease (CAD), myocardial infarction and stroke. Genetics certainly play a role in the development of the MSyn but lifestyle/environmental issues such as a low physical activity, poor diet and progressive weight gain significantly contribute to risk.
