I’m interested in HIIT as a means to achieve fitness in much less time than the 150 minutes a week of exercise recommended by various public health authorities. I don’t like to exercise, so I’m searching for a program with substantial benefits at only 60-90 minutes a week! Can I get a “Amen!”?
Why didn’t the authors at least mention the oft-cited and apparently pioneering work of Izumi Tabata et al from 1996?
