In this study, they compared the circulatory (hemodynamic) respones to:
HIIT may be an efficient exercise training modality in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction.
What does this mean to you?
If the leading edge cardio researchers are looking at HIIT as an effective treatment for HEART DISEASE patients, then it might just be good for you too.
