Elevated postprandial triacylglycerol (TAG) concentrations and increased C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations are risk markers for cardiovascular disease. The effects of resistance exercise on postprandial TAG metabolism and CRP are uncertain. The studies reported here examined the influence of resistance exercise on postprandial lipaemia and CRP. All studies were approved by the University's Ethical Advisory Committee. Fifty-five male participants were recruited to five studies. The age, height and body mass of the participants were: 24.2 ± 3.8 yrs, 1.78 ± 0.06 m, 78.0 ± 10.8 kg (mean ± SD). The aim of the first study was to evaluate the hypothesis that a single session of resistance exercise would lower postprandial lipaemia.
