I watched the documentary 'The Truth About Exercise" and wanted to share the results of this new study, which negates all other previously held notions about how we should be exercising.

Of course, it's more complex than that, but basically "the chair is death" - some people sit in their chairs up to 12 hours per day - the advise us to get up every hour and move.

They also suggested that a 90 minute walk (normal pace), every day, is extremely beneficial, including eating right. But, as for exercising, in the video below, the test subject (a low responder to exercise, which means no matter how much he exercises his body does not respond favourably) will vigorously bike for 3X - 20 second bursts, with a short rest inbetween, this equals 1 minute - and he was required to do this 3 days per week for a total of 3 minutes/week.

The result: his muscles absorbed and used 33% more fat, than by not exercising longer. As well, there was a less marked improvement in his insulin results, that being a 23% improvement.

Quote:There’s also some evidence that people are more likely to stick to HIIT training routines than endurance regimens[6]. That’s possibly because HIIT takes a whole lot less time, and packed schedules are one of the main reasons why adults don’t exercise. Even better news? Scientists say HIIT is appropriate for people of all ages and fitness levels (start sprinting, Gramps!)[7].

Start sprinting gramps. chuckle.gif

Yup. Been doing that for a couple of years (during no snow seasons). Only 30 second sprint, 90 seconds jog/walk x 8. Twice a week. cheers.gif

This type of workout will work for me; short and sweet. I'm so happy there are people out there that are studying 'smart' ways to keep us healthy. cheers.gif

Actually it's not really sweet while you're doing it and feel like throwing up and passing out at the same time. chuckle.gif It does feel good afterwards though. And you burn a lot of calories. thumbsup.gif

Well, the way I will approach it at first won't be super intensive...I'll work up to that....sort of fast and definitely short for now.

Yeah you have to work it up. Although you should run as fast as you can for 20-30 seconds no matter what shape you're in. I think that's the point. cheers.gif

It's hardcore at first. When the snow gets off the ground we basically have to start from square one again. gaah.gif
Looking forward to spring agony though.

Yes, I can understand why they would recommend that.

Thanks Octo, those instructional excercises could not have come at a better time for me. I hurt my lower back and gluts on the weekend and still have pain five days later.

I tried the first exercise just now and, wow, it feels so good. I tried the second but it hurt, so forget the third for now.

The first one is my new favourite exercise. cheers.gif

I'm going to try that exercise "The Founder" later tonight. I have a haircut I need to do first and that usually cripples my back a little. beercheer.gifhi5.gif
