Some research in Scotland, with only a few participants, showed that high intensity training [6 second bursts of going "all out"] may be very beneficial.
Over the 6 week study, they increased the burst to 1 minute and the researchers found this HIT exercising lowered blood pressure and made regular life tasks like dog walking easier for the participants.
More research is needed with more people, but it does seem to be saying that:
Getting your sweat on, in short bursts,
is good for you at any age!
"...you're never too old, too frail, too ill to benefit from exercise, as long as it's carefully chosen."
"We know even into your 80s and 90s there's a benefit from developing a very slight sweat by exercising on multiple occasions per week."
So? What are you waiting for?
Me? I'm taking woof for some short burst training.
Have you tried this? How did it help? Or not?
Comments? Thank you......
