Abstract: Fibromyalgia (FM) is characterized by generalized pain and associated with impaired physical capacity and activity limitations. Low-intensity exercise has been shown to be a safe way to exercise without risking an increase in diseasespecific symptoms. There are few studies evaluating the effects of resistance exercise designed to improve muscle strength in FM. However they have documented promising effects of resistance exercise on muscle strength, health status and pain, but the paucity o... more
