Rethink the effect of resistance training on six-minute walk distance?

J. Redfern, T. Briffa

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate/opinionResearch


The utilisation of resistance training in patients with chronic heart failure is an area of great interest and potential. In their recent systematic review, Hwang et al (2010) provide a clear argument supporting the hypothesis that resistance training could improve peripheral muscle strength and ultimately functional capacity in people with chronic heart failure. Their review reports the meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials; however, both the title and primary conclusion should be considered with caution.
