Truth About Exercise Tonite 9pm

BBC2

think theyll also cover the £5mill study that was done on HIIT - very good watch if they do

Horizon: the Truth about Exercise is on Tuesday at 9pm on BBC2 (11:20pm in Wales, Thursday 11:20pm in Northern Ireland)

Like many, Michael Mosley want to get fitter and healthier but can't face hours on the treadmill or trips to the gym. Help may be at hand.

He uncovers the surprising new research which suggests many of us could benefit from just three minutes of high intensity exercise a week.

He discovers the hidden power of simple activities like walking and fidgeting, and finds out why some of us don't respond to exercise at all

Using himself as a guinea pig, Michael uncovers the surprising new research about exercise, that has the power to make us all live longer and healthier lives.


Edit - not much coverage on this but this was in the scottish sun today alot more to the findings but hey ho

http://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/scotsol ... rkout.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

what this and the previous study does not enforce is the intensity of that 20-30 seconds..its truly flat out and nothing beats running it. Having pissed about with various over past 4 months - prowler and running HIIT, hands down, will get you seriously lean and fit [with diet obv] followed by about 10-15 mins of steady state to clear the FFA's from the blood

Similar to what Rob Blakeman used to use in his gyms. Mind you I know the two in Brum have gone tits up.

Why are Chavs like slinkies? They have no real use but it's great to watch one fall down a flight of stairs.

I just dont think anyone thinks about it mate. the odd passing thought.

People are in general so lazy. most have no idea about a healthy diet, most dont exercise at all in essence....

We have everything on a plate in this country and are so very fortunate. health care free to anyone, affordable food, a million and one oppertunites for exercise be that the great out doors, local council facilites that are subsidised and a couple of quid...even less if you are a consession and dont work, classes everywhere for a few quid. Its all taken for granted we have had it so easy and people genuinely dont know they are alive

i thought it was a good program tbh. but i can see ppl now doing few mins of 50% effort thinking it was tough..

fat tax is the only way! Jules will be fucked - but its the only way!

I think the more money it costs obesity - the greater the need for some serious changes -

like whats happened to the cigaratte industry - as soon as the health care costs went to multi billions they acted......same thing may happen with obesity?

you ignorant little cretin bender
obesity is already at endemic levels and costs the nhs -and you should know this from your recent sojourn at gsts - all depends on how it is coded-
so hiit potentially cause further undue stress on the orthopods- with a load of fatties (me included) doing high impact load bearing exercise, that quite frankly is far too much for our poor skeletal systems

you do wax lyrical- you are the equivalent of barry bethell for slimfast with your advocacy for hiit
