No Time To Train? No Problem…

Research has found that weekly resistance exercise sessions of 1-3 times per week OR the total amounting to 1-59 minutes were associated with approximately 40-70% less risk of total cardiovascular disease events.

And this was also regardless of aerobic exercise!

One of the things they also showed was that there was no significant risk reduction for more than four times per week or greater than 60 minutes of resistance exercise.

In a nutshell, even one time OR less than one hour per week of resistance exercise is beneficial (independent of aerobic exercise).

This is great news for those of us who struggle to fit in training sessions at the gym.

Even a few squats, press ups or pull ups each day can be of benefit to our health.
