Abstract :

Exercise has been shown over and over again to have a profound effect in reducing systemic inflammation and lowering oxidative stress. Consequently, it is routinely recommended as part of the lifestyle treatment plan for PCOS women, whether they are overweight/obese or not. But it may not be that simple; the following questions are rarely asked, even though they have a profound bearing on the effectiveness of the overall program: How much exercise is enough? Thereâ??s no point in prescribing too little to be effective or more than is necessary; How much exercise is too much? Can you actually recommend or can your patient self-prescribe so much exercise that the benefits begin to decline and are outweighed by the harm incurred?; What are the latest technologies for measuring the body composition effects of exercise? Wouldnâ??t it be nice to know with some degree of precision how effective a program is for your patients? You will also find out how exercise intensity impacts effectiveness and you will learn about the latest data on high intensity interval training- is compliance better or worse than it is for long, slow exercise and are the benefits actually worth the extra effort and risk?
