Exercise - Benefits of Short Duration, High Intensity Interval Training

We must have come across those few energetic and passionate individuals who just spring up from their bed and toss on their running or exercising gear and happily skip down the road or parks for their morning exercise. However, there are others who just

 press the snooze button and drag themselves into the blanket again. The benefits of the physical activities are boundless. While some people enjoy such activities, there are others for whom it seems to be a mammoth task.

Exercising is not only a great way to get stronger but it is also great way to keep your internal organs healthy. Regular exercising helps in increasing stamina, build a stronger heart and even relieve stress. In order to lead a healthy lifestyle it is essential to maintain a good and healthy lifestyle which has a regular exercise routine.

Why do you need Short breaks and Interval Trainings?

People working at desk jobs are more prone to chronic neck and back pain, obesity causing various cardiovascular diseases, cases of diabetes and many other fatal ailments. Individuals having long hours at computer desk jobs are also prone to cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a condition that arises due to the compression of the median nerve when it travels out of the wrist at the Carpal tunnel. The symptoms for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are often confused with simple wrist pains. While I have seen some patients complaining of excruciating pain and certain numbness in a certain part of the hand, several others have been facing chronic pain in the arms and shoulders.

Short Duration Interval Training- What does Chiropractic say?

Take short quick breaks; spend 10-15 minutes indulging in some freehand exercises. That’s all you need to keep healthy and avoid a host of lifestyle diseases.

  • Say Goodbye to cardiovascular problems: People who work out or exercise regularly have less risk of cardiovascular problems such as heart disease and cardiac strokes as compared to people who do not exercise at all. As low as 2.5 hours of normal physical activity on regular basis every week deliberates this advantage and this risk reduces significantly for people who indulge in more exercise regularly.
