Washington: When it comes to weight and fat loss, aerobic training is better than resistance training, researchers say.The study led by North Carolina researchers is believed to the largest randomized trial to directly compare changes in body composition induced by comparable amounts of time spent doing aerobic and resistant training, or both in combination, among previously inactive overweight or obese non-diabetic adults.A total of 234 previously sedentary overweight or obese males and females, age 18-70 years of age, were enrolled in one of three eight-month supervised protocols: aerobic training (AT), resistance training (RT), or a combination (AT/RT). Of the total, 119 participants completed the trials and had complete data for the variables of interest in the article.Those assigned to aerobic training exercised vigorously, at about 70-85 percent of maximum heart rate. They exercise approximately 45 minutes three days per week throughout the study period.
