Study: Strong Evidence That Resistance Exercise Helps Prevent Weight Gain

Study: Strong Evidence That Resistance Exercise Helps Prevent Weight Gain

We came across this study recently and believe it is important to share with you, our Unjury® customers:

While there is ample evidence that aerobic exercise (AE; e.g., running), helps fight weight gain, there has been less research into the benefits of resistance exercise such as lifting moderate weights or body weight exercise such as pushups and sit-ups.

Highlights of the study:1

  • Resistance exercise may reduce the risk of obesity, especially obesity characterized by higher body fat percentage.
  • Resistance exercise should be promoted alongside aerobic exercise as part of comprehensive physical activity program to prevent obesity.

So what can you do? 

  1. Build an exercise plan that works for you, and always ask your doctor before taking on new activity.
  2. Start small and add weight or more repetitions when the exercise feels comfortable.  
  3. Mix resistance training and aerobic exercise (like walking, biking , jogging) to help  reduce the risk of obesity.

Here's why  resistance exercise works:  if you get protein (just after) resistance exercise, it helps build more muscle. Muscle is active tissue that burns calories, even at rest.

Remember, you need high quality protein to build muscle and recover from your activity. 30 grams of protein, three times a day, spread throughout the day (30-30-30) is recommended by medical research. Get your Unjury today.
