“Lifting Weight Slims Down the Belly”

“. . . It’s the apple-shaped person I’m most worried about,” said Stevens, who was not involved in the study. “The more central the fat, the more it’s laid down in the arteries . . .”

. . .Women who did the weight-training for two years had only a 7 percent increase in intra-abdominal fat, compared to a 21 percent increase in the group given exercise advice. . .

Too bad the study didn’t compare Cardio vs Real Weightlifting. But if you consider the group that ‘was given an exercise information pamphlet’ as a ‘no exercise’ group, the study does have some merit.

“. . .This is not a program you could do in your home, unless you can afford to have a full gym in your basement . . .” Schmitz said.

Too bad the researcher (and the rest of the world) doesn’t know about CrossFit and Garage gyms. Just about anyone can afford a pair of dumbbells and some workout shoes. What people can’t afford is the ‘effort’ it takes to be self motivated.

    Tabata was good this morning, what was not good was the 25* 100M run. It was FREEZING.
