The article discusses a study which investigated the relationship between improvement in abdominal obesity or cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and the effect of exercise on insulin sensitivity in obese adults. The researchers found no correlation between change in insulin sensitivity and exercise-induced change in CRF. They clarify that their findings do not contradict the importance of measuring CRF in practice.
