Did you guys attend any of my weekend Hiit Group training before ?
The HIIT/strength training combination had the biggest effect in older adults, helping to decrease aging at the cellular level.
HIIT is defined as mixing intense bursts of exercise with short periods of active rest; a run-walk combination is a good example of HIIT. Interval training can be incorporated into activities ranging from walking and biking to swimming. These bursts keep your heart rate up and help burn fat and, according to Bell, “High-intensity interval training is considered one of the best ways to improve cardiorespiratory and metabolic function.”
BUT DON’T FORGET STRENGTH TRAINING
Strength training is also important to maintain good health as you age. A older adults who did strength training at least twice per week had a 46% lower odds of death, a 41% lower risk of cardiac death and 19% lower odds of dying from cancer than those who did not strength train.
I suggest building strength by training with weights 2–3 times per week. In order to optimize results a person must be utilizing the appropriate amount of resistance, performing the exercises with proper and building in recovery time.
A physical therapist or personal trainer can create a workout regimen that incorporates interval and strength training that is targeted toward your current fitness level. The effort could help keep you looking and feeling stronger, healthier and younger.
