We all know that exercise helps us stay healthy and live longer. But did you know that incorporating high-intensity interval training (HIIT) into your workout regimen a couple of times a week can reduce the effects of aging at a cellular level?
A recent study at the Mayo Clinic reveals that when you include HIIT with strength and aerobic training, your body’s cells begin to show signs of reverse aging! HIIT training not only improves lean body mass and insulin sensitivity, but also improves aerobic capacity and the mitochondrial function needed for skeletal muscle. Researchers say HIIT offers the most benefits to aging adults since it improves and slows the decline of muscular age. But HIIT offers a multitude of benefits for every age, including increased energy and libido and reduced stress levels.
