Yoga vs. Gym Workouts: What’s Best?

Yoga and regular gym workouts are both equally effective according to a new study, Ivanhoe reports.

The study led by Dr. Daniel Hughes,an exercise researcher at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio (the team behind SaludToday), surprised all participants who expected one of the workouts to emerge as more effective.

“I think I was expecting that one would be stronger than the other, and probably thinking that yoga would be the end all be all,” Michelle Hart, a study participant, told Ivanhoe.

For the study, one group was asked to do yoga, a second group to do regular gym workouts, and a third group to just stay active.

During the study, all participants exercised three hours a week and lost the same amount of body fat, “about four percent.”

“All three arms were just as effective in terms of body fat, fitness and physical function,” Hughes said.
