High-intensity interval training affords big benefits in fitness and health without investing a lot of time. The training combines short bursts of vigorous exercise, followed by periods of rest.
The American Council on Exercise says it’s good for you because:
- It offers a major boost to your anaerobic and aerobic fitness.
- It increases sensitivity to insulin and lowers levels of fasting insulin.
- It helps decrease fat just under the skin and abdominal fat.
- It offers significant results in a short time.
