Spring is coming – so why not spring into health?

If you’re thinking of getting fitter but always say you haven’t got the time, here’s a new discovery by Canadian researchers that might inspire you to take the plunge.

While conventional wisdom states that a steady workout for 30 minutes or more is good for you, you do have a new option.

The technique is called High Intensity Interval Training and it works like this:

1.) You exercise for 1 minute, getting your heart rate up to 90% of the maximum beats per minutes (calculated roughly in a healthy person by subtracting your age from 220).

2.) Rest for 1 minute.

3.) Repeat until you have performed a total 10 minutes exercise and 10 minutes of rest.

How you exercise is up to you. You might be running, or spinning on a bike, or doing crunches – but whatever you do has to be strenuous enough to get your heart going.

Research has shown that these 10 minutes of exercise and 10 minutes of recovery, performed once a day has huge positive effects on cardiac performance, circulation and cardiac health.

So, if you’re considering getting fitter – it’s another option to try! Of course, with all exercise regimes, you should check your levels of health first with a professional, to ensure that the regime will be safe for you!

Till next week!
