61] The improvements in both training groups were greater in those with poor glycaemic control at baseline.  Collectively, studies generally show greater improvements in HbA1c with ST when baseline values are high and when training programmes use relatively heavy resistance protocols lasting longer than 2 months. [72,73] Thus, almost every biomarker of insulin sensitivity has been used to test the hypothesis that ST improves insulin sensitivity, and most studies provide data that support this hypothesis, regardless of what biomarker is used.
However, the exercise duration and frequency of the ST programme (20 minutes per session, three times per week) was considerably less than the AT programme (30 minutes per session, five times per week), and the estimated energy expenditure in the ST group was <25% of the AT group. Also, the resistance used during training was relatively low to moderate.  They have acknowledged, however, that their data do not allow definitive explanations for improved insulin sensitivity, given that only the content of signalling molecules and proteins were measured.
