To investigate the effects of daily undulating periodization resistance training (DUPRT) program on anthropometric and biochemical profile and muscular strength in an HIV-infected woman with lipodystrophy.
Case report: A 50 year old woman participated in a 6 week DUPRT program. Anthropometric and glycemic profile as well as blood lipid profile pre- and post-DUPRT.
Results: After six weeks, the participant showed increased body lean mass, circumference of arms, thighs and calf, HDL-c, and muscle strength. She also exhibited reduction in fat percentage and fat mass, circumference of neck, chest, waist, abdomen and hip, and levels of fasting glucose, triglyceride, total cholesterol, LDL-c and HBA1C.
Conclusion: Six weeks of DUPRT improved all evaluated profiles in an HIV-infected patient with lipodystrophy.
