According to a new study from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), when short intervals of activity are changed to rest periods, is the best way to keep your cells young.
The study included 72 volunteers, 36 men and 36 women, and divided them into groups according to age: a young group included those between 18 and 30, and an old group consisted of people aged between 65 and 80 years.
After a period of various regimes of training, the researcher concluded that at the molecular level, HIIT produced the biggest benefits, with the younger participants on HIIT showing a 49% increase in mitochondrial capacity, and the older participants on HIIT reaching a 69% on average.
Moreover, the scientists say the regeneration of muscle protein seen in this study could also be replicated in the heart and brain, two other areas of the body where cells wear out more easily as people age.
