Introduction Resistance training (RT) is a very popular form of physical training for increasing strength and skeletal muscle mass. Adaptive responses to RT include the enhancements of general health, body composition, and athletic performance ( Kraemer et al., 2002a ). For each purpose, different RT schemes are recommended through manipulation of the acute training variables, such as the load, volume, frequency, rest interval, velocity of execution, range of motion, as well as the choice and order of exercises ( American College of Sports Medicine [ACSM], 2009

Introduction For dancers, being a particular group of athletes, the optimal body composition serves as the means for achieving both the physiological needs of a healthy body and the esthetic goal of thinness to obtain maximum onstage performance. Previous studies investigated the body composition of female dancers aiming either to provide descriptive characteristics of dancers or to determine the optimal body composition, which would maintain the best standards of health and improve training techniques [ 1 , 2 ]. The above studies indicated that even though

tobacco cessation counselling. The rehabilitation’s benefits are symptoms decrease, a better effort tolerance, decreased frequency of exacerbations and hospitalisation time and overall improvement of quality of life. Thus, the patient is allowed to be socially reintegrated ( 1 , 2 , 3 ). We conducted a small interventional prospective study on patients with various pulmonary pathologies in which we analysed RR effects on body composition. For patients with respiratory diseases, the modified nutritional status (either obesity or malnutrition/cachexia) can negatively
