Now there is bad news for the overweight people who want to get some positive results from resistance training. Especially for those who want results from exercise training just by doing small amount of exercise.
According to a latest study, the overweight people have lesser chances of getting some positives from resistance training and if they really want to get something out of exercise, they have to make more hard efforts as compared to leaner people.
It does not mean that the overweight people should just stop doing it. They should go ahead with their exercises as difference between the amount of efforts they have to make and leaner people make is very less.
But with this we should not forget that exercise programs not only kelps us in losing weight but also have many more health benefits.
The study was carried on 687 adults that were between the age of 18 and 39. These volunteers took part in various exercise programs for 12 weeks.
At the end of 12 weeks, it was found that, everyone gained strength and muscle. But the overweight adults gained 4 to 17 percent less than those adults with normal weight (From Yahoo News).
