HIIT it With Your Best Shot and You Will Live Longer

A recent study in the journal of Cell Metabolism, showed that high-intensity interval training (HIIT), could improve age-related changes to your cells.

Researchers found that it improved age-related decline in muscle mitochondria, cellular powerhouses that create energy molecules for cells. HIIT also appeared to increase the production of proteins in cells that are important for normal body function—a process that normally declines during aging.

What is HIIT?

High-intensity interval training is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.
