Do you ever forget one of your eight passwords on your computer?
Lose your keys for the second time in a week?
Leave the house without your wallet?
Wouldn’t it be great if your workout could actually help boost your brainpower? Well it can!
As if we haven’t heard enough benefits from High-intensity interval training (HIIT), there is even newer info that is being researched as an added benefit of High Intensity Interval training. Not only does HIIT give you 5x the results and benefits as regular steady state cardiovascular training and produce Human Growth Hormone (HGH) which is the anti-aging hormone linked to fat loss etc., but now it is linked to keeping your brain young and functioning better; especially for the middle age population.
After all, our brain (though it is complex) is just another organ in our body that would benefit from the same type of training that has been proven to benefit so many other areas of our body. New research shows that your workout can actually help your brain stay young and fight off dementia amongst other brain-related aging diseases.
The research has just begun in this area so it would be no surprise if this study were just the tip of the iceberg in the many ways HIIT can benefit your brain! Let’s face it, we could all use all the help we can to stay not only our fittest but also our sharpest!
If you want to get the most bang for your buck when doing HIIT, we recommend Variable-intensity Interval Training (VIIT). VIIT workouts which allow you to work out more efficiently and effectively because it enables you to do true HIIT intervals that have a necessary recovery period. MASHUP®'s VIIT workouts combine Agility & Strength, HIIT, and MindBody to ensure you are getting everything in that you need within a short period of time and that you always have three fitness levels to choose from.
