Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Accumulating evidence indicates circulating concentrations of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), or IGF-1 relative to IGF binding proteins (IGFBP’s) is associated with increased risk for the development of several forms of cancers. Similarly, exercise has been linked with reduced cancer risk. PURPOSE: To assess the effects of a 16-week (2xweek) home-based strength training (HBST) program on serum IGF-1, IGFBP-1, IGFBP3, and their ratio we randomized 32 obese Latino adolescent males (aged 14-18 years) into a twice-weekly Home Based Strength Training group (HBST;n=16) or a Control group (C;n=16) for 16 weeks. METHODS: Home-based strength training for 16 weeks, composed of two one-hour sessions per week. Outcome Measures were assessed pre- and post intervention/control condition and included IGF-1, IGFBP-1 and IGFBP-3, fasting glucose, two-hour glucose, Body Mass Index (BMI), dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan, dietary intake and physical activity using the Actigraph GT1X. GLM was used to assess differences in changes in outcome measures, between the C and the HBST groups. RESULTS: Over the 16 weeks of the intervention there was a trend for a significant within-subject’s differences for IGF 1 (p=0.078), but no significant within-subject’s differences for IGFBP-1 (p=0.187), IGFBP-3 (p=0.490), fasting glucose (p=0.87), and 2-hr glucose (p=0.38). There were also no between subject differences noted in fasting glucose (p=0.36), 2-hr glucose (p=0.84), SI (p=0.34), AIR (p=0.27), and DI (p=0.73). There was a trend for a between subject differences in IGF1 (p = 0.081). There were also no between subject differences noted in IGFBP-1 (p=0.194), IGFBP-3 (p = 0.202), fasting glucose (p=0.36), and 2-hr glucose (p=0.84). CONCLUSIONS: These preliminary results suggest that a twice per week 16-week home based strength training program does not affect concentrations of IGF-1, IGFBP-1, and IGFBP-3, in obese Latino boys.
