Research shows that regularly exercising for extended periods of time could do more harm than good–especially in those with a history of heart disease.

Research clearly shows that short bursts of intense activity is safer and more effective than conventional cardio—for your heart, general health, weight loss, and overall fitness. For optimal benefits and safety, make sure you allow your body to recover between sessions.

It’s also important to give your body the nutrients it needs for repair. Fast-assimilating protein such as high-quality whey is an ideal recovery meal. Processed carbs and fructose should be avoided at all costs.
