Aerobic exercise is one of the most preferred form of workouts because of its various benefits that go way beyond just weight loss.
People face a tough conundrum when it comes to exercise. They want an exercise which not only helps in losing weight but which also tones the muscles, boosts immunity and increases endurance.
That’s why aerobic exercise along with resistance training is the most preferred and acclaimed workout which improves endurance and increases muscle strength.
According to Dr Dennis Villareal, a physician and professor of Medicine- Endocrinology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, “Combining them (aerobic exercise and resistance training) creates the biggest benefit.”
Villareal along with colleagues found that the combined aerobic and resistance training resulted in a faster improvement in physical function and reducing frailty in obese people.
Fitness takes control and maintains body weight. Weight control means eating balanced meals, healthy foods and following a consistent exercise regime.
Here are a few ways one can control his or her weight through aerobics and resistance exercises:
Combined aerobic and resistance exercises are ideal and necessary for maintaining muscle mass during weight-loss therapy.
Combining both aerobic and resistance exercises helps in the loss of lean mass by one percent more than through resistance exercise or aerobics alone.
Aerobics and resistance training show improved cardiovascular fitness.
While it all looks positive, remember, if resistance and aerobic exercise are not administered properly, they can lead to injuries.
