However, in PCOS some forms of exercise are very important over the other. Exercise helps in many ways, as it helps in managing glucose and insulin level. Exercise makes glucose to be taken from the blood moved into the muscles, lowering the need for muscles at that time and hence improving the body’s sensitivity to insulin. 

We have to keep in our mind that if we can manage insulin we can even manage testosterone, the causal of the majority of PCOS symptoms.

Cardio versus weight training in PCOS exercise

Cardio training brings a rise in your heart rate and uses energy which increases your total calories used, which will help in your weight loss. It has also effective in reducing cardiovascular diseases in women with PCOS

Strength training helps in building your muscles which is important in raising your metabolism rate so that you can burn more calories while at rest and while you are exercising. 

We should try to include both cardio and strength exercise as they both are beneficial for us.

How much PCOS exercise do we need?

In a week, we should be doing 150 minutes of exercise. 90 minute of that should comprise of moderate to high-intensity aerobic exercise. So, look for 30 minutes 5 times per weeks, with two of those sessions being resistance or strength training.
