We seniors know the clock is running. Anything we can do to “hack” the amount of time it takes to do something is valuable to us Upgrading Seniors. Here’s a fitness hack for you.
Studies show that 27 minutes of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) 3 times a week render the same aerobic and anaerobic improvement as 60 minutes of cardio done 5 times a week.
So, if the fitness result is the same, would you prefer 1 hour and 21 minutes of time spent working out per week, or 5 hours of weekly workout time?
That’s roughly 7.5 days (over a week) per year you can spend doing something other than working out, with no loss in aerobic or anaerobic fitness.
You’re welcome, UpGraders! (Use that extra week to do something worthy!)
