Q. Glen, Is it true that aerobic exercise for more than 45 minutes at a time can lead to inflammation and weight gain in the abdominal area?
A. This is not true — in fact, it's the opposite. Aerobic exercise for any amount of time can decrease inflammation and decrease weight gain in the abdominal area. Abdominal fat is the worst kind because it is associated with chronic inflammation and is more likely to lead to type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
All types and duration of exercise can benefit the upper body. Even walking at a moderate pace (as if you were late to work) can reduce fat storage in the abdominal area. As a matter of fact, studies have shown that people who exercise moderately all their lives do not gain as much weight as those who don't exercise and that they have lower rates of type 2 diabetes, which in turn can lead to heart disease, The message is clear — keep it moving for better health.
