Adult obesity is a common problem at this stage, leading to the emergence of many obesity diseases, seriously jeopardized life and health. The purpose of this study was to explore the role and mechanism of aerobic exercise in the prevention and control of obesity in adulthood. In this paper, the development trend and measures of obesity in adulthood are described in detail. Then, the influencing factors of obesity in adulthood are analyzed from the perspectives of energy metabolism and exercise factors. Then, with the help of the experimental model of young rats, the specific role of aerobic exercise in the prevention and control of obesity in adulthood and the related mechanisms were explored and analyzed. The rate of obesity in adulthood was reduced by about 24 percent, the rate of obesity in adulthood was reduced by about 25 percent, and the rate of obesity recovery was increased by about 26 percent, when compared with the data without aerobic exercise. Overall, sustained aerobic exercise over a long period of time may protect against obesity in adulthood.
