TRAINING FOR HEALTHY HORMONES


Best Load For Building Jump Power

Epidemiologists estimate that approximately 80% of all common diseases are linked to body fat and an inactive lifestyle. Fatty adipose tissues produce hormones that directly influence metabolism. A study from the National Center for Tumor Diseases illustrates how significant this impact can be.

A group of 439 overweight female subjects was divided into three groups: Just diet, diet plus exercise or just exercise. After a year of dieting, working out or both, researchers found that all groups produced less leptin, which plays a key role in regulating energy balance, and more of the anti-inflammatory adiponectin. Changes were greatest in women who lost 10% of their original body weight.
