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%.
