The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a single resistance training session on the glycemic and lipid response of women with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) treated with Antiretroviral Therapy (ART). The sample consisted of 10 female subjects who underwent one resistance training session involving different muscle groups, that is, three sets of 8-12 repetitions with an interval of 90 seconds between the sets, and 120 seconds between exercises. The loads used in each exercise corresponded to an intensity equivalent to the interval of 5-7, which was in accordance with the OMNI-RES scale. The capillary glycemic levels were evaluated under the fed state before (Pre) and immediately after (Post) the exercise session. In order to evaluate the total cholesterol, HDL, and triglycerides (TG), blood samples were collected before (Pre) and one hour after the experimental protocol (Post). Non-HDL values were obtained using the Friedewald formula. The results showed that after a single resistance training session, alterations occurred in the glycemic response (p= 0.03), with a decrease of 11.4% in the values when comparing Pre and Post workout moments (99.8 ± 14.3 mg/dL vs. 87.3 ± 11.3 mg/dL, respectively). However, no significant result was observed regarding lipid response. In conclusion, a single resistance training session can reduce glycemic response in HIV positive people treated with ART without interfering with the lipid response.
