BACKGROUND: Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) has been inversely associated with insulin resistance and clustering of cardiometabolic risk factors among overweight and obese individuals. However, most previous studies have scaled CRF by body mass (BM) possibly inflating the association between CRF and cardiometabolic health. We investigated the associations of peak oxygen uptake (V̇ O2peak) and peak power output (Wpeak) scaled either by BM-1, fat free mass (FFM-1), or by allometric methods with individual cardiometabolic risk factors and clustering of cardiometabolic risk factors in 55 overweight or obese adults with metabolic syndrome. METHODS: V̇ O2peak and Wpeak were assessed by a maximal cycle ergometer exercise test. FFM was measured by air displacement plethysmograph and glucose, insulin, HbA1c, triglycerides, and total, LDL, and HDL cholesterol from fasting blood samples. HOMA-IR and metabolic syndrome score (MetS) were computed. RESULTS: V̇ O2peak and Wpeak scaled by BM-1 were inversely associated with insulin (β=-0.404 to -0.372, 95% CI=-0.704 to -0.048), HOMA-IR (β=-0.442 to -0.440, 95% CI=-0.762 to -0.117), and MetS (β=-0.474 to -0.463, 95% CI’s=-0.798 to -0.127). Other measures of CRF were not associated with cardiometabolic risk factors. CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that using BM-1 as a scaling factor confounds the associations between CRF and cardiometabolic risk in overweight/obese adults with the metabolic syndrome. ...

Is low cardiorespiratory fitness a feature of metabolic syndrome in children and adults? Haapala, Eero A.; Tompuri, Tuomo; Lintu, Niina; Viitasalo, Anna; Savonen, Kai; Lakka, Timo A.; Laukkanen, Jari A. (Elsevier, 2022)Objectives Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) has been inversely associated with risk of cardiometabolic diseases. However, there are no studies comparing the independent associations of CRF scaled by body size and composition ...

The effect of physical exercise on body fat, metabolic health indicators and cardiorespiratory fitness in overweight sedentary women Kolunsarka, Iiris (2020)Introduction. Physical activity, sedentary behavior and overweight have been widely studied in health-related research. The guidelines for physical activity were updated in 2018, emphasizing the need for the reduction of ...
Effects of a short-term resistance training protocol on risk factors for the metabolic syndrome in the elderly Inglis, Alistair (2016)The metabolic syndrome is strongly associated with negative health outcomes, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and death. The elderly are at particularly high risk of developing the metabolic syndrome, owing ...
