ACT-LA

(Adolescent Circuit Training in Latina Adolescents)
PI: Jaime Davis

ACT LA examines the effects of a circuit training intervention on breast cancer biomarkers, adiposity, type 2 diabetes risk factors, and physical activity.

We would like to determine whether circuit training, a combination of both aerobic exercise and strength training, will aid in the reduction of breast cancer biomarkers by reducing circulating hormones and ovulation frequency, and will improve both insulin sensitivity and adiposity.
