A mix of exercise protocol is better
Dr KK Aggarwal | 04 Sep 2013

Only aerobic exercise is also as good as it reduces weight and inches off the waistlines. Jut weight lifting alone has very little benefit, said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela.

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

 Only aerobic exercise is also as good as it reduces weight and inches off the waistlines. Jut weight lifting alone has very little benefit, said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela.

 According to a study published in the July 7th issue of American Journal of Cardiology, people in the weight-training group gained about 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 dropped about 4 pounds and 1 waistline inch.  This group also saw a decrease in diastolic lower blood pressure and in a metabolic syndrome score.

 Both the aerobic-only group and the combined-exercise group also lowered their levels of bad triglycerides.
