Research summary:

The goal is to find out how does the time of the day (circadian rhythm) affects metabolic response with resistance exercise for people type 2 diabetes. However, the focus at this moment is the effect of circadian rhythm on metabolic response with physical activity or exercise in general for adults. Then from the results we could be more specific on what type of exercise and what type of population.
