Which type of exercise may improve your cardiovascular risk?

In adults with overweight or obesity, aerobic exercise alone or a combined resistance plus aerobic exercise program leads to improvements in composite cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk profiles at one year, according to a study recently published in the European Heart Journal.

The study randomly assigned 406 adults (aged 35 to 70 years) with overweight or obesity and elevated blood pressure to

  1. resistance exercise (102 participants)
  2. aerobic exercise (101 participants)
  3. combined resistance plus aerobic exercise (101 participants)
  4. or a no-exercise control (102 participants)

Interventions lasted one hour, three times per week, for one year.

The researchers found that at one year, there were declines in the composite Z-score, indicating improved CVD risk profile, in the aerobic (mean difference, −0.15) and combination (mean difference, −0.16) groups. However, no improvement was seen in the resistance group (mean difference, −0.02).
