To lose weight and keep fat off your midsection, combine both workouts
People tend to fall into two categories when it comes to working out: those who enjoy cardio workouts and those who would much rather train with weights.
A new study reveals that the best way to lose weight and slim down your waistline may be a combination of both types of workouts.
Being overweight puts you at risk for all kinds of conditions, and the risk is magnified when the extra weight occurs around your midsection.
Stay healthy, drop weight, and feel fitter by making room for both cardio and weight training in your workout schedule!

Given the choice between going running and doing strength training, most runners will pick the former. New research has found that those who run at least in part to keep their waistline trim will benefit most from a combination of running and weight training.
The researchers studied the physical activity, body weight, and waist circumference of 10,500 healthy men, age 40 and over, who took part in the Health Professionals Follow-up study between 1996 and 2008.
Being overweight increases the risk of developing conditions like heart disease and diabetes, and carrying more weight around the midsection is thought to further raise the risk.
