Abstract

In this pilot study, resistance training was highly effective in enhancing mitochondrial content in patients with moderate-to-severe CKD. This finding suggests that the mitochondrial dysfunction observed with chronic disease could potentially be restored with this exercise modality and should be investigated further.
