Yes, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has been a big trend in fitness over the past five-to-seven years, but did you know that HIIT was originally used for athletes decades ago? Only recently has HIIT transcended the realm of athletic performance to the world of everyday fitness. This episode of All About Fitness features my interview with Dr. Martin Gibala, a researcher who has been studying the benefits of HIIT for the average population for a number of years. If you don't want to read through the plethora of academic studies that Dr. Gibala has published on HIIT then I strongly suggest you pick up a copy of The One Minute Workout, his recent consumer-facing book which explains the benefits of HIIT and how you can use it to improve your fitness as well as optimize your health.
Dr. Martin Gibala is a professor and the Chair of the Kinesiology Department at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario (Canada).
While HIIT was originally developed for athletes, researchers like Dr. Gibala have been studying it's benefits for the averaging population including for weight loss and preventing onset diabetes. On this episode of All About Fitness, Dr. Martin Gibala and I discuss the science of HIIT and how you can use it to improve your life.
