Exercise is considered an essential for growth and development, and the benefits are endless. It's a healthy way to improve the body and relieve stress. Exercise is linked with a lower mortality rate. Here Laurel Ives, BBC Health, reflects on weight loss and effective high intensity interval workouts:
“Bursts of high intensity interval training (Hiit) may be more effective for weight loss than longer less intense workouts, a study suggests.
The research, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, analysed results from 36 earlier studies.

Although all the participants lost weight, those doing Hiit saw a 28.5% greater weight loss.
The researchers cautioned that Hiit may not be suitable for everyone.
“Hiit might increase the risk of injury and impose higher cardiovascular stress,” they said.

Researchers from the Federal University of Goias, Brazil, analysed data from 576 men and 522 women of varying levels of fitness.
Interval training was defined as cardiovascular exercise which involved repeated brief bursts of intense effort, interspersed with recovery periods. Cycling, swimming, running and boxing were included.

These workouts were compared with longer continuous moderate intensity workouts, most of which were between 30 and 45 minutes. All participants exercised for at least four weeks.
Those doing interval training lost on average 1.58kg (3.48lb) compared with the 1.13kg (2.49lb) lost by those doing lower intensity workouts.
Sprint interval training seemed to be particularly effective for weight loss, although researchers did caution that the wide variety of training programmes made it difficult to recommend one regime in particular.

The NHS currently recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity, such as cycling or brisk walking, every week.”
