We read the valuable article of Oliveira et al1 entitled “Resistance training improves isokinetic strength and metabolic syndrome-related phenotypes in postmenopausal women” with interest. In their well-designed prospective study, the authors observed improvement in metabolic syndrome-related phenotypes after 12 weeks of resistance training. We have some comments that could facilitate interpretation of the results of this study.
