Obesity affects a large part of world population, with an impact also in childhood. It stands out as effective ways of treating the adequacy food and regular exercise. Research has shown that resistance training (RT) has significant role in prevention and treatment of obesity and its consequences on the health and quality of life. The objective of this study was to develop a critical review about the influence of RT on parameters as indicators of prepubertal children with obesity health. Literature search was conducted in main databases Medline, PubMed and Lilacs, using the key words: resistance training, resistive training, strength, children, obesity, considering articles published between 1989 and 2010. Were selected articles that support the implementation of TR on the improvement of functional and metabolic parameters of pre-pubertal children with obesity. It was possible to say that RT has a positive effect on body composition, muscle performance and increased bone density, reflecting an improvement in daily activities and sports. However, further studies are necessary to understand the effect of RT on adipose tissue and muscle mass in childhood. 

Keywords: Resistance training, child, obesity, review.
