The study included 96 obese men and women who followed the exercise program and diet for a period of 22 weeks. Participants were divided into four different groups, depending on the type of exercises. All participants are practicing three times a week and followed the diet plan, which was based on reducing calorie intake.
At the end of the study, all participants lost a number of extra pounds. Among all was observed a significant loss of fat tissue. It can be concluded that the type of exercise really played no role when it comes to any weight loss.
