Obesity is linked to several medical conditions including; heart disease, cancer, type II diabetes, and high blood pressure.
An adult with a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or higher is considered obese. For the average male, that’s about 200-209 pounds. Research tells us that waist circumference predicts the risk of obesity related disease. So, what is the best way to eliminate excess belly fat? In a study published in The Journal of Obesity, February 2015, researchers found that men who increased the amount of time lifting weights by 20 minutes per day, had a smaller waist line gain during the study period than those who increased their aerobic exercise by 20 minutes per day. The study involved 10,500 healthy men in the U.S. over a 12 year period. Resistance exercise such as weight lifting provided the best results in this study for reducing belly fat gain, but aerobic exercise also reduces fat by burning excess calories. A combination of resistance and aerobic exercise could provide a synergistic result. One way to combine strength training and aerobic exercise is with the GSX 360 exercise tool. Small enough to take anywhere, and designed for the novice as well as the advanced fitness enthusiast. With the GSX 360 it is possible to get a full body work out including abs, arms, lats, shoulders, and lower body in as little as 7 minutes per day. It is possible to achieve toning, strength, muscle building, and aerobic exercise with a device that can be held in one hand, and can be used at home, the office, and travel.
