Results from a recent study suggest that high-intensity exercise consisting of interval training is better at reversing components of metabolic syndrome than aerobic exercise alone.
Investigators, led by Dr Arnt Tjonna (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway), showed that among patients with the metabolic syndrome, those randomized to a high-intensity exercise program had significantly improved HDL-cholesterol levels, whereas those performing aerobic exercise did not, and there was a greater improvement in fasting glucose levels when compared with those undergoing a moderate-exercise training program.
Sproing is a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) machine that accommodates users of any level and provides a unique and intense workout consisting of cardio, power, strength and balance.
A recent study found 8-second bursts of sprinting followed by 12-second recovery phases for a total of 20 minutes, three times a week, helped men lose as much as four pounds of visceral belly fat in just three months. This is the type of fat associated with heart disease.
Sproing’s unique design allows runners to rapidly accelerate and deaccelerate while the exclusive soft, cushioned surfaces reduces by half the impact of the softest treadmill on the market.
