On Strength Training & MS
Did you know that scientific research has proven that Strength-Training // Resistance-Training improves muscle strength and functional capacity in multiple sclerosis?
A 12-week research study, performed by the Department of Sport Science at the University of Aarhus in 2009, sought to test the hypothesis that progressive resistance training can improve muscle strength and functional capacity in patients with MS. 1
The research consisted of having 2 different groups. Each group was made up of 19 people of moderately impaired patients with MS. One group performed resistance training exercises for 12-weeks while the other group performed no resistance training.
The result was that those in the group that performed resistance-training had significantly improved in knee extensions as well as functional capacity compared to the control group. The control group (those that didn't perform resistance-training) then performed resistance training and saw their knee extension and functional capacity improve!
Just like the participants in this study - you are strength-training! Keep it up and you will see results. Science proves it!!
