Cardio Best For Decreasing Abdominal Fat

Better than weight training

Cardio Best For Decreasing Abdominal Fat
Excess abdominal fat is linked to poor metabolic health. It increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes and premature death. It is linked to insulin resistance, high blood pressure, abnormal blood fats and inflammation. Aerobic exercise decreases abdominal fat better than weight training. Scientists combined the results of many studies using a statistical technique called meta-analysis and ended up with a sample size of more than 2,000 people. Most studies found that aerobic exercise decreased abdominal fat, while weight training had no effect. Most weight training studies used low intensities, so the results might not apply to more serious trainers. (Obesity Reviews, published online July 26, 2011)
