Which type of exercise endurance training vs. strength training best decreases the risk for coronary disease?
We've been taught to exercise daily through endurance training to best decreases the risk for coronary disease. But when look at all the components of energy metabolism we see that strength training in fact is superior in decreasing the risk for coronary disease (McGuff & Little, 2009).
When exercising at a low-intensity steady-state an individual is not able to achieve complete glucose depletion which results in a reduced ability of these muscles to store glucose. Glucose storing capacity is reduced when glucose elimination is incomplete and leads to extra glucose in the bloodstream. This extra glucose in the bloodstream will be diverted to fat cells which in turn increases the risk of developing coronary disease. Endurance training such as running, for example, does not facilitate complete glucose depletion and thus decreases...
