In Episode 71 of the Real World Wellness podcast, Christine chats with monthly co-host and certified nutrition specialist Amy Berger, MS, NTP about the research and benefits of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). The good news is you can perform HIIT with or without machines and you can get the same, if not better, benefits as with standard continuous exercise in a lot less time. For example, if you have type 2 diabetes, your insulin sensitivity and blood sugar may improve more with 10 minutes of HIIT three times a week than 45 minutes of standard moderate exercise three times a week. We also talk about ancestral patterns of movement which involved mainly low-level activity punctuated by brief adrenaline-pumping bursts of activity.
