Vigorous Exercise Versus Slow Exercise

Vigorous Exercise Cuts The Time In Which You Practice

This makes total sense.  The more vigorous and the faster the exercise the shorter you time you need to achieve the same results as doing slow drawn out practice.

  • The more intense your exercise, the less time you have to spend on it. One single minute of strenuous activity within a 10-minute exercise session is as effective as working out for 45 minutes at a moderate pace
  • Part of the answer to why high-intensity interval training is so effective has to do with genetic optimization. This kind of activity appears to be “built into” our genotype
  • Intense but brief exertion produces immediate changes in your DNA, improves glucose tolerance, and triggers production of human growth hormone and mitochondrial biogenesis, which is crucial for longevity
