Fixed exercise time, not intensity decreases abdominal fat; intensity required to improve glucose levels

March 2, 2015

Abdominal obesity decreases with fixed amounts of exercise of any intensity level, but reductions in glucose levels appear to occur only when the intensity level is high, according to research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

“Higher intensity can be achieved simply by increasing the incline while walking on a treadmill or walking at a brisker pace,” Robert Ross, PhD, of the school of kinesiology and health studies, Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada, said in a news release. “Participants were surprised by how easy it was for them to attain a high intensity exercise level.”
