People Feel Better About HIIT If They Can Also Listen To Music

October 26, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A Canadian study finds that moderate exercisers exposed for the first time to high-intensity interval training (HIIT) are more likely to enjoy it if they can listen to music during the workout. HIIT is an exercise strategy that allows people to work out in brief alternating periods of intense anaerobic exercise and less-intense recovery periods. According to the researchers, as little as 10 minutes of intense HIIT three times a week can lead to meaningful health benefits. It is usually recommended that people get 150 minutes a week of traditional aerobic exercise.
