Resistance Exercise and MS

A recent Pubmed article reports that heat sensitive individuals with MS may tolerate resistance forms of exercise better than endurance training:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23166119

This is so in my case. it's now been about 10 years since I was able to run or swim or bike, but I workout several times a week using resistance training with light free weights. I assume resistance training is a better fit for me because ...
