Brief description While it is well established that T2D patients can derive multiple benefits from exercise, meeting these recommendations is inevitably challenging. This study investigates two practical and feasible approaches that could be embedded into the daily lives of patients with T2D – to identify the potential metabolic benefits of regularly breaking up sitting time with short bouts of either light-intensity walking or simple resistance activities.
