New Research Reveals Why High Intensity Training Is So Beneficial for Health—It May Even Help Prevent Cancer

Story at-a-glance -

  • Recent research reveals that myokines—a class of cell-signaling proteins produced by muscle fibers—can combat cancer and metabolic syndrome
  • High intensity training effectively stimulates your muscles to release anti-inflammatory myokines
  • Myokines increase your insulin sensitivity and glucose use inside your muscles. They also increase liberation of fat from adipose cells and the burning of the fat within the skeletal muscle
  • Acting as chemical messengers, myokines inhibit the release and the effect of the inflammatory cytokines produced by body fat. They also significantly reduce body fat irrespective of calorie intake
  • 90-98 percent of people who exercise are NOT doing high intensity exercises. By focusing on slow endurance-type exercises, you actually forgo many of the most profound benefits of exercise
