What is Better: Cycling, Walking, or Both? It depends…

This current study analysed the effects of walking, cycling, and a combination of the two, on obesity markers such as BMI, weight, waist circumference, and body fat percentage in 12,776 participants.

Results revealed that walking was linked with lower obesity markers, however, cycling was only linked with lower obesity markers in men.

Additionally, walking and cycling in combination appeared to have a more pronounced effect on reducing obesity markers in women when compared to cycling alone.

This study highlights the importance of public health measures aimed at increasing cycling and walking participation as a preventative strategies to tackle obesity.
