Diabetes proof your body.

You've heard it before, move more!!
Well it sounds like this claim has gained merritt as of late.
With several new studies showing the more you increase your exercise the better your insulin sensitivity.
In this study people who had burned the most calories per week saw the greatest improvements in insulin sensitivity.
Higher intensity workouts showed the most significant impact in slowing down diabetes by boosting the number of calories burned per minute.
The advice here is work smarter not longer, it's not what you do but how you do it that matters.
So start adding some intervals or surges to your workouts, either at the beginning or the end, walk 60 seconds sprint for 30 sec, and repeat four times.
You can do these on a treadmill, or exercise bike, or rowing machine, or in the pool.
I like to vary the surges between lower and upper body sessions.
For example, get on treadmill but do not turn on the power, and for 30 seconds hold on to the front bar and push the belt and try to run/walk.
This is really hard as you push the belt your also leaning forward pushing against the bar working the whole body, then rest for 60 seconds and repeat 3 or 4 times.
Many gyms also have a rope pulling machine, where you sit and pull hand over hand on this revolving rope, it's called the Compact Climber, set resistance to a desired load and pull for 30 seconds, then rest for 60 sec and repeat 3-4 times.
The machine will give you a distance, so as you get fitter you will see incremental greater distance measurements.
Total workout time for these surges will amount to about 5 or 6 minutes but you should feel exhausted after, and then do a five minute cool down walk.
Live long and strong.
