XXParticipants were randomly assigned to three groups, one for three-month resistance training, one for aerobic training, and one for non-exercise controls. The exercise training of the experimental group was three times a week, 45 minutes each time. Subjects underwent cardiac MRI scans at the beginning and end of the study.
Both exercise training reduced epicardial adipose tissue compared to no exercise: aerobic training was reduced by 32% and resistance training was reduced by 24%. However, only resistance training has an effect on pericardial adipose tissue, and the resistance-trainer's pericardial adipose tissue is reduced by 31% compared to no exercise.

Dr. Chadi Alais, an interventional cardiologist and director of interventional cardiology at the Heart Hospital of the Detroit Medical Center, said: "This new study is interesting because it specifically studies the relationship between exercise and fat around the heart." /p>
According to the new study, Alaisis conjectures that the best way to fight heart fat is to train both endurance and resistance. “Only running on a treadmill is too monotonous. You can add some dumbbells, sit-ups or push-ups. You can also bring weight-weight equipment such as dumbbells to the office. You can also do some resistance training on a daily basis.”
Although the findings are interesting, Dr. Alais added: "We don't know what will happen in 10 years, and we don't know if the results will change, so we need some longer-term research."
Therefore, friends, want to better reduce the risk of heart disease, on the basis of aerobic exercise such as running swimming, add some resistance to exercise, such as lifting weights, lifting dumbbells, barbell effect will be better.
