As per DC Lee, who is an associate professor of Kinesiology said that the people who all think that they need to spend a lot of time to lift the weights. But if you go for the two sets of bench presses which will be of 5 minutes is said to be effective. It has been seen that the results of the first look at this resistance exercise as well as cardiovascular disease are said that it has got some kind of benefits of the strength training like walking, running or any type of aerobic activity.  

It is said that it is not needed to meet the guidelines for the aerobic physical activity to reduce the risk of weight training.
