Weight-Bearing Low Impact Exercising

A Duke University Medical center report on the
various factors that affect weight loss points
to vigorous, sustained exercise as a key factor.

Estimates for the benefits of milder forms of
exercise, such as a one-mile walk are imprecise
at best, and often do not take into account
factors that reduce their actual effectiveness.

Machines such as treadmills, for example,
overestimate the amount of acids eliminated
by 10-15 percent.

However, weight-bearing, gravity-fighting, low
impact exercises like rebounding, isotonic
weight lifting, dancing, skating, running,
stair-climbing and whole body vibrational
exercising eliminates the same amount
of metabolic acids, in the same period
of time, than gentler water-based exercises
or cycling, although some make up for this
by cycling for longer periods.

How skillfully you perform your personal exercise
regimen affects the amount of acids you eliminate
through the sweat glands. Poor technique may make
you work harder and create more acid than you are
eliminating and you’ll quit faster and may hurt
yourself along the way.
