Radio Interviews

Esmée Bakker live on the air

Esmee Bakker Gelderlander 29 Jun 2017

On June 29th, Esmée Bakker was interviewed by Radio 538 by Edwin Evers, Funx and De Gelderlander. The interviews were about a study in ~7500 American adults that she and her colleagues published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. The results of the paper suggest that less than one hour per week resistance exercise is associated with a reduced risk of developing metabolic syndrome. 

The beneficial effects of resistance exercise were independent of aerobic exercise such as running and cycling.
