Weight loss + resistance training = lower Metabolic Syndrome

FACTS: 1) Metabolic Syndrome is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

2) You need a doctor who can guide you through proper diet recommendations to induce weight loss and teach you correct exercise activities. If you are overweight, even obese, and sedentary I know how to do this.

Resistance training alone is not enough…caloric restriction is not enough.

MY PROGRAM: I will teach you my weight loss movement training program which starts out slow and easy (you can do this at home or in the office three times per week). You’ll start with your own body weight movements, then progress to CLX bands, then to free weights (3 sets of 10 repetitions for each of 8 – 12 exercises at about 70% of your 1 repetition maximum) over the course of 3-5 months. I’ll also teach you how we get 5% to 10% weight loss by decreasing a small amount of your daily caloric intake.

This combination of exercise training and a simple way to eat and not be hungry, results in weight loss.

Just -5.5% of your body weight can significantly reduce the presence of Metabolic Syndrome in overweight/obese older people.

You’ll see results in decreasing blood pressure and a decrease abdominal fat.

In recent studies resistance training alone without weight loss was not beneficial for improving Metabolic Syndrome.
