12-Minute HIIT Helps Improve Fitness in Inactive Men

12-minute HIIT

Story at-a-glance

  • Inactive men who engaged in 4-minute sessions of high-intensity exercise three times a week showed significant improvements in fitness levels and blood pressure levels
  • A growing body of evidence shows that short bursts of high-intensity activity followed by periods of rest provide greater gains to your health than slow-and-steady longer workouts
  • The high-intensity exercise routine I recommend, Peak Fitness, involves going all out for 30 seconds and then recovering at a slower intensity for 90 seconds between sprints. The total workout is typically 8 repetitions for a total of four minutes of actual exercise.
  • You only need to perform high-intensity exercise for anywhere from four to 20 minutes, two or three times a week, for maximum benefits
