YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT COCKTAIL CONVO STARTER
Could you replace your 55 minute workout class with a 1 minute workout? Dr. Gibala, a professor of kinesiology at McMaster University in Ontario, says yes. For more than a decade he has several studies that look at the long-term effects of short, high intensity workouts. In one of his studies he found that "after six weeks of performing three [[high intensity] sessions per week, for a total of 18 minutes of intense exercise tucked in to slightly longer periods of less intense exercise, the volunteers were significantly more aerobically fit and healthier, with improved blood pressure numbers and markers of muscular health." See ya, SoulCycle. Read more here.
