Building Strength Lowering your percentage of body fat and adding muscle tissue through regular strength training can be a great way to help guard against heart disease.

Recent research has shown that losing weight around the abdomen and increasing your body's muscle tone has a dramatic effect on reducing the risk of developing the cluster of Cardiovascular Diseases known as Metabolic Syndrome, also called Syndrome X. The disorder also plays a key role in the development of Type II Diabetes and has been linked to prostate cancer.

One study reported that Metabolic Syndrome declined by 41% among a group of 104 adults aged 55 to 75 after the participants added 20 minutes of gentle weightlifting to their aerobic routine over a period of six months.(1)

Many people are unaware that they are suffering from Metabolic Syndrome, even though the American Heart Association estimates that 20-25% of the adult population of the U.S. suffer from this disorder. That means between 58 and 73 million men and women are at risk.

Metabolic Syndrome is characterized by having at least three of the following symptoms:
  • Insulin Resistance (when the body can't absorb blood sugar or insulin properly)

  • Abdominal fat - in men this means a 40 inch waist or larger, in women 35 inches or larger

  • High blood sugar levels - at least 110 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) after fasting

  • High triglycerides - at least 150 mg/dL in the blood stream

  • Low HDL (the "good" cholesterol) - less than 40 mg/dL

  • Prothrombotic state (e.g. high fibrinogen or plasminogen activator inhibitor in the blood)

  • Blood pressure of 130/85 mmHg or higher
Circuit weight training, in which you move from one exercise to the next with little rest in between, is a good way to combine a strength workout with aerobics because the rapid pace keeps the heart rate up. But always consult a doctor or exercise specialist before beginning a strength training and aerobics regime.
