Diabetes and Strength Training

Len Kravitz, PhD ©2011
You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

Join Dr. Kravitz for a comprehensive review of research regarding the role of resistance training in the prevention and management of diabetes. Diabetes and Strength Training details the pathophysiology of the disease as it relates to physical activity and, specifically, to strength training. You’ll gain tools to design resistance training programs that can be the centerpiece of intervention strategies for the fastest-growing health problem in the United States.

“Dr. Len Kravitz’s webinar was very helpful, and he’s a great teacher. I have been a certified personal trainer for 10 years, and some of the guidelines (e.g., glucose levels for exercising) have changed. Thank you for a job well done!”
