This study looked at the effect of 12 weeks of HMB supplementation, with and without resistance training (RT), on abdominal adiposity in elderly men.  Forty-eight men 66 to 78 years of age were assigned in a factorial design to either no exercise-placebo, RT-placebo, no exercise-HMB, or RT-HMB. After 12 weeks the RT-HMB group had significantly less abdominal adiposity when compared to the other treatment groups.  This study suggests that HMB combined with 12 weeks of RT decreases abdominal adiposity in elderly men.
