Close to 80% of the diabetic population in America is obese. There is no question as to whether or not a workout routine will help most diabetics. The only question is what kind of routine should diabetics do? Will diabetics benefit more from weight lifting, running, circuit training, or aerobics. Personally, I think everyone can benefit from a proper Kung Fu workout, but the thing about martial arts is that they are not for everyone. Whether you’re a runner or a weight lifter, the best type of workout is one that mixes all types of exercise. Weights can add a bit of muscle and running can increase your lung capacity as well as endurance. The bottom line with working out is to try to fit in any kind of exercise every day. Although it is best to mix it up, working out period is a plus.
