eWellness: A mix of exercise protocol is better

0 Read Comments                

A combination of weight training and aerobic exercise is the best for overweight patients who are at risk for diabetes and heart disease.

Only aerobic exercise is also good as it reduces weight and inches off the waistlines. Just weight lifting alone has very little benefit.

According to a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology, people in the weight-training group gained nearly 1.5 pounds and those in the aerobic group lost an average of 3 pounds and half an inch from their waists.

Those who did both weight and aerobic training decreased about 4 pounds and 1 waistline inch. This group also had a decrease in diastolic blood pressure and in metabolic syndrome score.

The aerobic-only group and the combined-exercise group also saw a decline in levels of triglycerides.
