    Interval Training Superior to Others in Improving Muscle Aging

    Damn...I hate interval training but these data are very compelling on the advantage of interval training in improving mitochondria function. Time to reconsider my resistance exercise only program.

    ..."But more unexpected results were found in the biopsied muscle cells. Among the younger subjects who went through interval training, the activity levels had changed in 274 genes, compared with 170 genes for those who exercised more moderately and 74 for the weight lifters. Among the older cohort, almost 400 genes were working differently now, compared with 33 for the weight lifters and only 19 for the moderate exercisers.

    Many of these affected genes, especially in the cells of the interval trainers, are believed to influence the ability of mitochondria to produce energy for muscle cells; the subjects who did the interval workouts showed increases in the number and health of their mitochondria — an impact that was particularly pronounced among the older cyclists"

    I'm not a big fan either, but I've got several routines I do, including one on the treadmill, that works very well.

    I really like that kind of training! High-intensity interval training are really worth doing! I personally do elliptical workout as I think it's much productive than others. High intensity interval training activates your metabolism and can burn large amounts of calories in short of calories in a short time leading to fat loss

    I have tried all manner of interval training. I've had the most fun and best results from boxing or more specifically, from heavy bag training. Scorches fat and gets an incredible sweat going. Also great for stress relief! I literally have to eat more to prevent too much weight loss.
