A study recently published in the Archives of Internal Medicine journal has been asserting that men at risks of type2 diabetes now need not to worry as weight training has proved to be efficient enough to cut the risks significantly.
A collaboration of researchers from the University of Southern Denmark and Harvard School of Public Health in the US had carried out the review. The study has shed light on the fact that weights may be a promising alternative for simple regular exercises, especially aerobics.
While exercises are not difficult to do and are known to minimize the chances of development of the disease, it becomes difficult for less mobile people to do the same. However, weights do not need mobility and equally benefit patients.
The basis of these findings is the study itself, which had been conducted on 32,000 men. Examining them for an 18-year period, it was found that the risks were cut by 34% if 30 minutes of weights per day for five days routine was followed. Nonetheless, exercise an hour a week also helped in cutting the same by some 12%.
Lead author Anders Grontved concludes, "These new results suggest that weight training, to a large extent, can serve as an alternative".
