All exercise is not the same.

Responsibly increasing intensity has added benefits.

Posted • @dr.eddiejo A new study hot off the press in female overweight subjects. In this randomized control trial, 42 overweight female subjects were evenly allocated to 3 training groups for 12 weeks: 1. Sprint interval training (SIT), 2. High intensity interval training (HIIT) or 3. Moderate intensity steady state training (MISST). Cardio-metabolic health variables such as VO2peak and insulin resistance (via HOMA-IR test) were assessed before and after the 12 weeks of training. All three training modes equally improved VO2 peak with an average increase of ~7-8 ml/kg/min. Since VO2 peak is largely due to cardiorespiratory adaptations, it can be deduced from this outcome that all subjects achieved significant enhancements to the cardiovascular system.
👉What is most interesting about this study, is that only the SIT and HIIT training resulted in a significant reduction in insulin resistance as measured by the HOMA-IR test. Thus, overall the higher intensity training programs yielded superior cardio-metabolic outcomes than the moderate intensity steady state program. From a practical standpoint, SIT required less total volume and time than HIIT and MISST and thus may be a worthwhile and time efficient option for those needing to improve cardio-metabolic health.
👉This study (along with others) provides valuable applicable data and insight to help properly guide medical practitioners toward exercise prescriptions better optimized for those patients of metabolic syndrome and/or disease (e.g. obesity and type II diabetes). It is no secret that physicians generally lack sufficient knowledge in exercise prescription to effectively guide their patients. If a physician is truly practicing evidence-based medicine, than they must accept that the common "prescription" of "30 minutes of walking at least 3 times a week" or the even more vague, "get more exercise" advise is unacceptable. There are sufficient data to suggest that changes in cardio-metabolic health variables vary depending on the exercise program employed. Time to get more specific with those exercise prescriptions docs

How fast people walk in their 40s is a sign of how much their brains, as well as their bodies, are ageing, scientists have suggested.
Using a simple test of gait speed, researchers were able to measure the ageing process.
Not only were slower walkers' bodies ageing more quickly - their faces looked older and they had smaller brains.
The international team said the findings were an "amazing surprise".
More well, move often, move fast.
