Abstract

Background: To study and find the efficacy of circuit weight training on exercise tolerance in type 2 diabetes mellitus subjects. Methods: Ethical clearance was taken from the Institutional Ethical Committee. This study was carried out by analysing total 30 subjects with type 2 DM between the age group of 45 TO 55 years. The participants were divided into experimental and control group by random sampling. The experimental group was given circuit weight exercising for 8 weeks 3-4 times a week for 45-50 minutes. Borg’s scale was used to check the exercise tolerance before and after the intervention. Result: There was an observed increase in the mean exercise tolerance parameters of the exercise group at the end of the 8 weeks. Statically the patients who were given circuit weight training showed there was extremely significant difference (p<0.0002) whereas in the control group it was not significant (p value0.4716). There was a considerable decrease in the systolic blood pressure of the exercise group and the control group remained steady. There was a considerable decrease in the mean heart rate of the exercise group and the control group remained steady. Conclusion: This study concludes that circuit weight exercise 2-3 times a week is useful to improve the exercise tolerance. It also prevents further complications and helps improve the quality of life. It also reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
