Diabetes study lends further support for ‘interval training’

High intensity interval training has become a popular exercise technique in recent times for time poor working professionals seeking greater return on their ‘exercise time investment’.

A recent diabetes study has shown that subjects who completed six 1 minute aerobic efforts at 90% demonstrated better blood glucose control in people with insulin resistance than the control group who completed 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at 60%.

If you are short of time and find it difficult to fit exercise into your week, this study provides further support for the health benefits of high intensity interval training with the total workout in this study completed in only 12 minutes.
