So I think we carriers of APOE4 understand that possessing the gene increases the risk for a number of health issues. It seems there is consensus on walking and aerobic exercise being beneficial but what about weight training and HIIT?
I have seen the studies that suggest that weight training can have lots of benefits as we age, regardless of APOE4 status. I have been doing a kettlebell program for a few years now and also light (trampoline) and HIIT aerobic exercise (kicking bag). I also like efficiency in exercise. Kettlebells are great because they are whole body exercise. I am looking into a new workout program that is very efficient at building strength but integrates hypertrophy, which I am not sure is a good thing given IGF concerns. Maybe IGF is only a dietary concern. Thoughts?
