We determined whether cold water swimming for six consecutive months results in adaptive changes in body composition and insulin sensitivity. Thirty healthy subjects aged 50.2 ± 9.4 years were exposed to cold water at least twice a week. Body composition was determined and serum glucose and insulin served to calculate beta-cell function, insulin sensitivity, and resistance using HOMA2. Compared with control subjects, swimmers were overweight, and had greater percent body fat and beta cell function. Women had lower values of BMI, fat free mass, muscle mass, visceral adipose tissue level, and greater percent body fat than men. Increased insulin sensitivity and decreased insulin secretion and resistance from beginning to middle of swim season was observed in females and in lean subjects. Findings suggest that men and women differ in regard to body composition and response to repeated cold exposure. Cold water swimming may beneficially modulate insulin sensitivity in cold acclimated lean swimmers.

. Variations in the attenuation ratio (determined from known tissue content) established the fat content of the tissue at each pixel. Abdominal subcutaneous (SAT) and visceral adipose tissues (VAT) were measured from cross-sectional magnetic resonance imaging scans obtained from a General Electric (GE) Signa

However, both body mass index and visceral adipose tissue were negatively correlated with energy expenditure response to electrical stimulation due to impeding the stimulus that reached muscle fibers. These findings suggest that low-force muscle stimulus

Osteoporosis is further accelerated by diabetes, and a recent study showed that vertebral bone marrow GU is inversely associated with bone marrow fat in

-abdominal adiposity and increased sympathetic activity was previously reported in Canadian adolescents ( Syme et al., 2008 ). Since WBV has been observed to decrease visceral adipose tissue in both humans and animals ( Rubin et al., 2007 ; Vissers et al., 2010 ), we speculate that improvements to the LF/HF ratio in

Indeed, ethnicity has been shown to influence subcutaneous adipose tissue to visceral adipose tissue ratios ( Camhi et al., 2011

Football players’ physiological measures did not necessarily indicate a diagnosis of apnea, but several group means were elevated relative to other young adults. For example, the
