A little thought on exercise

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

So evidently work harder, not longer is the key to be protective against Metabolic syndrome.
If that doesn't work, let me know. Multilevel trial showing low intensity exercise has almost no benefit. But high intensity has benefits galore (Their definition of high intensity was brisk walking at a minimum). Even at 20 minutes only so just a thought there.

    Isn't this what the HIIT programs are all about?

    Not sure about for metabolic syndrome, but for overall health, short bursts of intense exertion are the best way to go. long, low intensity exercise helps build endurance, but the short bursts help the heart, lungs and most all other parts of the human body. It's just getting yourself to do them that's the hard part!
