The high intensity workout: the fast track to fitness and health

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

In light of modern societies increasing time demands, we have an increasingly sedentary population who continually cite time as the biggest barrier to exercise. In this book we show you how you can get fit and improve your health whilst fitting it into a busy lifestyle. This book is for anyone who wants to improve their fitness, improve their health and reduce their chances of getting some of the major diseases in today s society such as diabetes and heart disease, but doesn't have time to spend slaving away at the gym or running for hours on end. Just two minutes of high intensity exercise, three times a week, can improve your fitness levels by an average of 10% as well as increasing lower body strength. As well as improving your fitness levels high intensity exercise can increase your insulin sensitivity by 25% and lower fat circulating in the blood by 15%. This book is written by scientists and all information in it has been scientifically confirmed. The findings from the study that this book is based on were recently the focus of a Horizon programme (28th Feb 2012) on the truth about exercise.
