HIIT Improves Blood Sugar Regulation

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) improves blood sugar regulation and prevents type 2 diabetes— according to a large meta-analysis by researchers from Great Britain. HIIT involves repetitions of high-intensity exercise lasting 10 seconds to several minutes, followed by rest. The analysis combined the results of 50 studies. HIIT reduced insulin resistance, hemoglobin A1c and bodyweight more than continuous exercise or inactivity in people with and without type 2 diabetes. HIIT produces rapid increases in fitness and improves blood sugar regulation. (Obesity Reviews, 16: 942–961, 2015)
