HIT me!

Health & Fitness Add comments

Recently I discovered a blog, by Jon Barron, which seems to have a lot of good advice on health and well-being. Here’s one article in particular I found interesting:

Intense Exercise Slashes Diabetes Risk

Now that I’m exercising on a regular basis (and even getting used to getting sweaty!), perhaps I’ll try to add in some High-intensity Interval Training (HIT). Anybody out there have experience with this type of training?

    I do hi-intesity intervals on my bike twice a week. OUTSTANDING way to increase your fitness quickly.

  2. Emily Says:

    What intervals do you use?

  3. Greg Says:

    I usually go full-out for two minutes, followed by about five minutes of recovery. I do this between work and my house and it usually lasts about 70 – 75 minutes.

    oooo… that IS intense! Perhaps I’ll try something similar on the bikes in the gym. Thanks!!
