Aerobic exercise is your best bet when it comes to losing that dreaded belly fat, a new study from Duke University Medical Center finds. When Duke researchers conducted a head-to-head comparison of aerobic exercise, resistance training, and a combination of the two, they found aerobic exercise to be the most efficient and most effective way to lose belly fat.
Belly or abdominal fat – known as visceral fat and liver fat — is located deep within the abdominal cavity and fills the spaces between internal organs. Belly fat been associated with increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, and certain kinds of cancer.
The Duke study showed aerobic training significantly reduced visceral fat and liver fat, the culprit in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.


Aerobic exercise also did a better job than resistance training at improving fasting insulin resistance, and reducing liver enzymes and fasting triglyceride levels. In the study, resistance training achieved no significant reductions in visceral fat, liver fat, liver enzyme levels or improvements in insulin resistance. While the training programs were substantial, Slentz says their previous research leads him to believe similar results could be achieved with a more moderate aerobic exercise program.

The intervals tested were 8 seconds for the exercising interval followed by 12 seconds rest.3.


Not trying to be negative, just genuinely do not get what the connection is between the research and the specific 4 minute suggested activity, althought that would be a great thing to do if you are trying to fit exercise in. It seems like the squats would be a short version of what group A did, versus what group B did.
