The Truth About Exercise—The Case for High Intensity Workouts

Jul 12, 2014 - 0 comments

Research shows that a mere few minutes of high intensity exercise per week can deliver many of the health and fitness benefits you get from hours of conventional exercise, including improved insulin sensitivity

When healthy but inactive people exercise intensely, even if the exercise is brief, it produces an immediate change in their DNA

Contraction-induced gene activation promotes genetic reprogramming of muscles for strength and other structural and metabolic benefits associated with exercise

Ideally, you’ll want to do high intensity exercises two or three times a week for a total of four minutes of intense exertion with recovery periods in between

For optimal health, you’d also be wise to incorporate non-exercise intermittent movement, strength training, core exercises, and stretching, for a well-rounded fitness program
