HIIT BE­CAME HUGE

Women's Health (South Africa) - - WHY NOT 100 -

Like LOL and WTF, HIIT doesn’t need spell­ing out. Named the num­ber one world­wide fit­ness trend in 2014 by the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Sports Medicine, high- in­ten­sity in­ter­val train­ing ( in case you missed it) is still the go- to way to torch max kJs in min­i­mum time. More in­cen­tive? Mayo Clinic re­searchers found that three weekly ses­sions on sta­tion­ary bikes for 12 weeks can boost cells’ abil­ity to pro­duce en­ergy by up to 69 per­cent – and re­verse age- re­lated de­cline of genes, such as those re­lated to mus­cle growth. Boom.
