In a recent study testing the effects of exercise on overall metabolism, researchers at Oregon State University found that even a single session of moderate aerobic exercise makes a difference in the cells of otherwise sedentary people.
“Even though high cardiorespiratory fitness achieved through regular exercise remains the goal, people need to know that exercise by itself – even one bout – is metabolically beneficial.”
Matt recommends people incorporate some type of HIIT into their regular exercise routines. He says that some of the most positive responses researchers saw were in participants doing the HIIT rather than the moderate intensity workouts. It also helped non-exercise responders become exercise responders.
Kinesiology professors Sean Newsom and Matt Robinson study the metabolic benefits individuals experience after exercise, and their research shows that just a single session can result in significant metabolic benefits and have a positive effect on blood sugar levels.
