High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is effective for kids and teens
A study published in SpringerOpen and conducted by PubMed and SPORTDiscus looked at data from healthy kids and teens, ranging in age from five to 18. It found eleven studies with a total of 1095 subjects where the participants completed at least five days of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Over the range, the participants averaged an increase in neuromuscular and anaerobic performance, an increase in the number of push-ups they could complete, and a healthy decrease in their fasted glucose levels.
Not only is high-intensity interval training (HIIT) safe for kids and teens, it’s proven to be a very effective way for them to build strength, endurance, and fight the onset of hypoinsulinemia and type-2 diabetes.
