Findings in a recent study have subjected that all those men, who particularly opt for weight training, lower their risk of being diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes. The risk is lowered more, if these men even include aerobic exercises.
Researchers of the study emphasized that those of who were lifting modest weights were even able to attain the benefits. However, those of who combined aerobic exercises with weight training were at more benefit.
Frank Hu from Harvard School of Public Health and colleagues suggested that weight training can be looked upon as a major solution for all those who find it hard to go for aerobic exercises.
The study, which is a part of Health Professionals Follow-up Study, found that out of 32,002 men, 2278 suffered from diabetes.
The study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, highlighted that all those men who weight trained for an hour, 90 minutes or at least 150 minutes, reduced their chances of developing the condition by 12%, 25% and 34% respectively.
However, for men who performed only aerobic exercises for the same duration, it reduced the risk by 7%, 31% and 52%, respectively. And in case of men, who performed both aerobic and weight training for at least 150 minutes or more in a week, were able to reduce the risk by 59%.
