Is High Intensity Exercise Necessary For Fitness?

Posted by

Various exercise commercials give viewers the impression that those fitness models do nothing the whole day but workout in the gym to maintain those muscles and keep them looking good and in shape. Because of this, a lot of people spend so much time working out and sculpting their bodies to get those big muscles and burn unwanted calories and fats with not much success. Science on the other hand declares that it is not necessary to spend so many hours in the gym to achieve one’s fitness goals. Some experts agree that a well sculpted and fit body can be achieved just by spending a moderate amount of time during exercise.

Science has proven that an interval approach in exercise produces far better results than that of doing daily workouts at least 2 hours a day. The studies show that people do not have to indulge in daily high intensity physical activity. Instead, the best way to achieve results is to do high level exercises for a few hours in a day and resting for the next two. One of the best exercises that you can do is throw footballs with a group. It develops strength and stamina at the same time.

There is also the fact that you get to relax your muscles and joints. This avoids burning them out which makes them susceptible to injury.

In the case of runners who run for miles, the best way to develop fitness is to do it daily but in alternate paces. Start out slow then after 10 minute go for a strong run for two minutes then go back to the slow pace.
