Hi every one! pease join us in _SUUNTO__FAT_BURNING_GROUP
In 2006, researchers from Berkeley and Stanford revealed results of a study on habitual runners. Shockingly, ALL the runners — including those who ran as much as 8 miles per DAY — got fatter with every passing year. The reason - an overdose of cortisol. But there is good news. Research on the Boutcher HIIT protocol showed that a group who followed a 20-minute program of 8-second sprints followed by 12 seconds rest lost 6 times more fat than those doing 40 minutes of cardio. Less is more.

I was lucky to spend yesterday afternoon with Elizabeth Blackburn, who won the Nobel Prize for discovering telomerase, which plays a crucial role in longevity. According to her, science shows that intense exercise helps extend life span -- but only if exercise is of short duration.Protracted cardio floods the system with cortisol, and shortens your telomeres, presumably shortening life. She advises against marathon running or Iron Man competitions.HIIT improves cardio fitness with less cortisol.
Thanx for the info! Very useful!
So-called Cardio exercise is one of promotions of the modern world. It is sold as the route to fitness and weightloo. While protracted "cardoi" does improve fitness for many athletes, it also entails cardio risks, and it helps some (about 25%) lose weight, "cardio" doesn't work for most exercisers. That's why you see so many fat girls toiling on treadmills. HIIT can do as much to improve cardiopulmonsry capacity as long distance running, and is much more effective for weight loss.
