If you want to have the biggest exercise impact your bathroom scale, then start running or cycling. Here’s why: Aerobic exercise, including running, jogging, power walking, swimming, cycling, rowing and jumping rope, is more effective than resistance training at losing weight and burning fat, according to a study from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
