Effect of resistance training on liver fat and visceral adiposity in adults with obesity: A randomized controlled trial. Hepatology Research,(7), 1-10. United Kingdom: John Wiley & Sons Ltd..

Regular aerobic exercise reduces visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and liver fat, however, not all individuals are able to adopt and adhere to such programs. Progressive resistance training (PRT) may be an alternative therapy, but there is limited available evidence. We examined the efficacy of PRT as per current exercise guidelines, compared with sham exercise placebo on liver fat and VAT.
