Abstract: Background The purpose of the study was to compare between moderate v/s high intensity exercise training for short duration on physical fitness and physical function in people with Type 2 diabetes. It is a well-known fact that exercise training consisting of aerobic as well as resistance training have beneficial effects in Diabetes. However there is paucity of data, whether short duration training has similar benefits. Methods Sample size estimation after pilot study yielded a sample of 30. The subjects were allotted into two groups moderate intensity (20) and high intensity (20) group. Resistance training consisted of seated isolated knee extension with weight cuffs. Aerobic training consisted of cycling on static cycle. Statistical analysis Pre and Post values of muscle strength, aerobic capacity in both the groups was done by paired T Test. Unpaired T-test was used to compare the post values of muscle strength, aerobic capacity between groups. This test was used to compare pre and post values of Patient specific functional scale Wilcoxon sign rank test was used. Mann Whitneys u test was used to compare post values of Patient specific functional scale. Conclusion There was significant improvement in both the groups when training was done for shorter duration.
