A group for those who employ Intense Interval training in the quest for fitness. HIIT can be adopted to almost any sport or activity. Build muscle & improve capacity. Open to anyone anywhere in the world who enjoys fitness.
A study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine followed 2,560 Finnish men for 16 years. It found that the higher the intensity of exercise, the lower the risk of getting cancer. The suggestion was that high intensity exrecise reduces your cancer risk by an average of 50%. Researchers from Kuopio and Oulu universities found that high intensity exercise particularly lowered the risk of getting and dying from lung and gastrointestinal cancer.Men with a mean (average) intensity of physical activity "over 5.2 MET had a greatly reduced risk of cancer death." To calculate MET,measure VO2 on your HR device, then divide by 3.5

Sorry I have been slow update the HIIT ppost. THe fact that the site is not compatible with the latest MAC software slowed me down. But I have a new message coming about HIIT & cancer. Two recent studdies suggest that HIIT reduces cancer risk by as much as one half. That is an excellent side-effect of getting in shape.
I must disavow the impression that I have done 18h 27min of exercise in April. That is entirely an artifact of my inability to stop my t6 at the end of a rushed exercise session crammed between a late flight and an early business dinner. I don't think high training volumes are the best basis for measuring exercise. In most cases, you are better off doing, shorter, more intense sessions.
My move of 6/2/13 either validates the effectiveness of HIIT in up-regulating exercise capacity or invalidates the MOVESCOUNT physiological calculations. I did 4 Tabata sets, starting with a bike warm-up & ending with weighted front squat of grueling intensity. If the t6 readings were correct, my max HR was 187 (predicted max for the age of 33) & calculated VO2 max - 72, about 2x what would normalize as excellent for my age. This implies that HIIT can ramp cardiopulmonary capacity in a big way.
cheers to everyone.... HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR.... I´M BACK !!!!
Can HIIT protected endurance athletes from the dangers of protracted aerobic exercise? Possibly.An article in the New England Journal of Medicine, "Heart-Rate Profile During Exercise As a Predictor of Sudden Death." basically implies that it• is healthier to exercise over a wide range of heart rates. The lower the increase in your heart rate during exercise, and the slower the decline in your heart rate post exercise, the higher your risk of sudden death. HIIT sessions may protect the heart.
