A team of researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts, USA has been suggesting men that they should go for weight training instead of physical exercises so as to reduce their risks of Type2 diabetes, as per a recent report.
Published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, the Health Professionals Follow-up Study conducted by the team has revealed that the greater the doses of weight training were, the lesser the risk of growth of diabetes was.
Also, it is being said by Frank Hu, lead researcher, and colleagues that combination of weight training with aerobic exercise even boosts the benefits. While even small levels of weight training help in cutting the risk for diabetes in men, addition of aerobics intensifies the same.
Some 32,002 men were enrolled in the review and examining them over a period of 18 years, it was discovered that only 2278 of them developed the disease. The data has provided evidence that time was also a major contributory factor in reducing the chances of disease development.
Those who worked out for less time were benefitted by below 25%, while those who weight trained for 150 minutes or so cut their risks by 34%. "Weight training serves as an important alternative for individuals who have difficulty adhering to aerobic exercise”, said Hu.
