The effects of regular football training on glycemic control, body composition, and peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) were investigated in men with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Twenty-one middle-aged men (49.8 +/- 1.7 years +/- SEM) with T2DM were divided into a football training group (FG; n=12) and an inactive control group (CG; n=9) during a 24-week intervention period (IP). During a 1-h football training session, the distance covered was 4.7 +/- 0.2km, mean heart rate (HR) was 83 +/- 2% of HRmax, and blood lactate levels increased (P
