    "Research evidence does not support [ Resistance Training ] as effective for weight loss with or without diet restriction" notes the American College of Sports Medicine Position Stand on Appropriate Physical Activity Intervention Strategies For Weight Loss And Prevention Of Weight Regain For Adults that was published in February 2009. (Noted in Table 1 on page 460.)

    "There is limited evidence that [ Resistance Training ] promotes gain or maintenance of lean mass and loss of body fat during energy restriction and there is some evidence [ Resistance Training ] improves chronic disease risk factors (i.e., HDL [ cholesterol ], LDL [ cholesterol ], insulin, blood pressure)," they continue.
