Abstract:   (922 Views)
Background. Abdominal fat accumulation, also known as central obesity, is a major risk factor for many degenerative diseases, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Isotonic and isometric workouts can be used to avoid the buildup of fat in the belly, and young ladies should measure their waist circumference regularly.
Objectives. This study showed how isotonic and isometric exercise affected waist circumference measurements in overweight or obese young women.
Methods. This study adopted a quasi-experimental design. Participants were divided into two treatment groups, isotonic (n=34) and isometric (n=34) groups. The exercise treatment lasted three months, taking measurements at regular intervals.
Results. Both isometric and isotonic treatments reduced waist circumference by about the same amount.
Conclusion. Isotonic or isometric workouts can be done by young ladies as long as they are done regularly. Isotonic and isometric exercise, done three times a week for one hour, can help lower waist circumference, which will reduce the risk of central obesity.

  • The information obtained in this study can be used as a reference for those who want to reduce their waist circumference, especially those with central obesity. Depending on their comfort level, they can choose isometric or isometric exercises to reduce their waistline. This exercise is cheap and easy so anyone can do it.
  • In addition, the results obtained will help government programs to prevent obesity and improve healthy lifestyles in the community.
