  • 20.2.2015 Message from the group creator:

  • Evidence continues to mount underscoring the superiority of HIIT exercise protocols in improving health in a variety of ways. Dr. Jonathan Little at the University of British Columbia has recently shown that HIIT is more effective at lowering high blood sugar for type II diabetics than continuous duration aerobic routines. Dr. Little has shown that 75 minutes of HIIT per week is more effective than 150 minutes weekly of the moderate intensity continuous duration exercise recommended by the American Diabetes Association. Happily, not many of us here need to be concerned with exercising to combat diabetes. But the encouraging implication of Dr. Little’s research may be of interest. Presumably if HIIT lowers blood sugar for full-fledged type II diabetics, it is also superior in lowering blood sugar and combatting metabolic syndrome in non-diabetics. HIIT works.

    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.

    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.

    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.
