“Running vs Weight Training: Still a mystery to the mainstream media”-Mark Rippetoe

Strength training is a much more powerful tool than running and aerobics for the modification of carbohydrate metabolism.

Strength training is scalable: it can be precisely administered at the proper level for each person. It is precisely increasable: the loads used can be adjusted upward as gradually as necessary to force a beneficial adaptation. And it is chronically therapeutic: strength can increase as a result of training for many years, and the health benefits that accrue from accumulating strength can continue to accumulate as well, long after the benefits from running and aerobics have stopped.
