Want to Live Longer? Try THIS
We all want to live long, healthy lives.
That’s why you eat right… take your supplements… and try to avoid stress.
But if you’re skipping the one type of exercise, you’re not doing everything you can to extend your life.
You researchers have pinpointed the best exercise for seniors who want to improve their fitness and quality of life… and even help them live longer.
And it’s easier to do than you think.
First of all, let me say that any movement at all is good for you—and far better for your health than being a couch potato.
But if you’re going to take the time to exercise, why not get the most bang for your buck?
To find out which exercise program delivered that, researchers divided elderly people into three groups.
One group trained at a steady, moderate intensity for 50 minutes (picture pedaling an exercise bike or walking on a treadmill).
The second group did high-intensity interval training (HIIT).
And the third served as a control group.
The HIIT group used the 4×4 method, which involved doing four rounds of the following: 4 minutes at about 90 percent maximum heart rate, followed by 4 minutes at just 60 percent of maximum heart rate.
Researchers followed the groups for five years.
First things first.
Any exercise—no matter what kind—was good for the overall health of the elderly.
But for an extra health boost?
HIIT was the clear winner.
The people in the high-intensity interval group had better overall mental and physical quality of life. Plus, HIIT had the greatest beneficial impact on fitness.
The HIIT group also had the least age-related decline in fitness levels. The moderate-intensity group had a 9 percent drop in fitness levels after 10 years… while the HIIT group only had a 5 percent drop.
As you might imagine, the people who didn’t exercise at all had the worst outcomes, with a 16 percent drop in their physical conditioning over 10 years.
The HIIT group seemed to live longer, too.
In the moderate-intensity group, 6 percent had died after five years—compared to just 3 percent in the HIIT group.

Two-for-one deals are great when you’re dealing with sales… but they’re not so great when you’re dealing with diseases. Psoriatic arthritis is like a two-for-one disease.
