In the study of "Soy isoflavones and exercise to improve physical capacity in postmenopausal women" by Choquette S, Dion T, Brochu M, Dionne IJ., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that exercise training can improve muscle tissue strength, function and quality in sedentary postmenopausal women. Isoflavones, irrespective of exercise, did not produce changes in these variables. From a clinical perspective, these results suggest that overweight women could reduce the risks of mobility impairments, even in the absence of weight loss, by following a sound exercise intervention that includes both resistance and aerobic training at a high intensity.
