You Can't Get Fitter
If you've been pushing hard in the gym but seeing fewer results and feeling more fatigued, you may be experiencing the cellular exhaustion of overtraining, which promotes chronic inflammation. You want to do short bursts of intense exercise instead of long, tough workouts. Doing intervals creates muscles and bones better able to fight chronic inflammatory diseases like sarcopenia (muscle wasting) and osteoporosis (bone thinning). Do a 20-minute cardio interval routine — go all out for a minute, then recover for a minute, and repeat — twice a week.
