The article focuses on the randomized controlled trial (RCT) investigating how do aerobic, resistance and combined training compare for reducing hemoglobin (Hb) A[sub 1c] levels in persons with type 2 diabetes. The trial, conducted with 251 participants (39 to 70 years of age), found out that combined aerobic and resistance training was more effective than either alone for reducing Hb A[sub 1c] levels in type 2 diabetes.
