Orderly exercise

It’s the age-old question: hit the weight room first or the treadmill? For people with type 1 diabetes, that decision may affect their risk for going low after exercising. Researchers monitored blood glucose levels. Researchers monitored blood glucose levels in 12 study participants during and after a 90-minute workout, starting with either 45 minutes of aerobic exercise and then switching to resistance training or the other way around. Participants who ran on a treadmill before weight-lifting experienced a steep decline in blood glucose during that session and then continued to trend low, spending an average of 105 minutes under 63 mg/dl overnight. Those who lifted weights first didn’t dip as low, needed to eat fewer grams of carbohydrate to maintain blood glucose levels during exercise, and spent only 48 minutes low overnight.

A day off

Physical activity is a boon for blood glucose control, but researchers found that exercising every day may not be necessary. In the study, people with type 2 diabetes cycled on a stationary bike for 60 minutes one day, skipping exercise on the next, or cycled for 30 minutes both days. Both regimens helped normalize blood glucose levels, and it didn’t seem to matter whether people exercised on one day or spread their activity over two days. It’s unclear whether alternating workout days would affect other benefits of exercise, such as weight loss and heart health. The American Diabetes Association recommends no more than two “rest” days between bouts of aerobic activity.
