The world’s top-performing exercise programs are getting a boost with new research that suggests it is the right time to increase your exercise and lose fat.
The results, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), show the importance of incorporating aerobic exercise into your training and the best ways to boost fat loss.
The study looked at the effectiveness of three types of exercise: interval training, walking, and a combination of the two.
A total of 7,500 people took part in the study, of whom 1,000 were male and 500 female.
The researchers found that the interval training group performed significantly better than both walking and a group of people who were not included in the analysis.
The interval training was found to increase both total fat loss and fat loss lean mass, and also reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
In addition, the group who did the walk training lost more fat and lost more lean mass than the walkers.
The research also found that when the interval group completed a three-week strength and conditioning program, the amount of exercise they did actually increased.
They were able to achieve greater muscle mass gains, which is known to be linked to improved fat loss outcomes.
“It is well known that exercise can improve body composition and health,” said Dr Laura Klimas, a research associate at the University of Southern California.
“These findings suggest that aerobic exercise may be beneficial to fat loss in some patients, although the effects are not yet clear.”
The study is the latest in a long line of research looking at the benefits of aerobic exercise, which has been gaining popularity in recent years as a means to reduce body fat.
It is also an easy way to build muscle.
“We know that it is a good way to get a lot of energy and nutrients and also to get more energy,” Dr Klimass said.
“But it can also increase the risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.”
The research has implications for a number of different factors, including fat loss goals, the types of foods people eat and exercise routines, she said.
Dr Klimascu said the results should give people pause for thought and allow them to consider the impact of their exercise routines on their health.
“They’re not just about getting in shape, they’re about health and they’re also about fitness and they should be thought of as part of a holistic approach to fat reduction,” she said
