COACH HAYDEN ON HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING AND FREE RADICAL DAMAGE

January 6, 2016 1:43 pm

High intensity training (exercise) has become increasingly popular over the past decade. Those who conduct this type of training see excellent results in terms of body composition and cardiovascular fitness. Several recent scientific studies have confirmed these observations; High intensity training is equally or more effective than other types of training, and gives these results with notably shorter training times. However, the mechanism by which a few minutes of high intensity training affects these changes remains unclear. In a recent study (Place et al., 2015), scientists asked if single bouts of high intensity exercise affect change through increasing reactive oxygen species (free radicals) in muscle tissue, and if these effects are less prevalent in those individuals who are highly trained endurance athletes.
