High-intensity interval training has been touted as a quick way to shed extra pounds, but a new study from Australian researchers has found only endurance exercises help people lose weight.
Regular continuous aerobic exercise yields better fat loss results than HIIT workouts for overweight people looking to shed weight and achieve a slimmer waistline, the University of Sydney researchers found.
The researchers did a controlled trial led by exercise physiologists Shelley Keating and Nathan Johnson. Overweight participants did the two different workouts three days a week.
The study has been published in the Journal of Obesity.
