Plyometric Exercises May Prevent Diabetes

Plyometric Exercises May Prevent Diabetes

Studies in the  Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research show that athletes don’t just increase their muscle strength during plyometric drills – they can also counter their risk of diabetes.

Researchers measured markers for diabetes in young athletes who carried out a series of high-intensity-resistance-focused training exercises. At the end of the trial the researchers discovered that improvements in strength were mirrored by better fasting-blood-glucose levels – and even more noticeable among those with a family history of diabetes.
