Purpose Maternal obesity can unfavorably influence offspring body composition, muscle strength, and possibly muscle's adaptability to training, but the human studies are scarce. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the effect of maternal obesity on offspring muscle strength responses to resistance training intervention in elderly frail women. Materials/methods Recruited participants were elderly frail women offspring of lean/normal weight mothers (n= 19, mean body mass index (BMI): 22.8 kg/m 2, range: 19.9–24.5) or …
