Many people fall into the camp of HIIT (High intensity Interval Training), demonizing LISS (Low Intensity Steady State) exercises. Why choose a side? There are benefits to both.
Here are some benefits of steady state cardio
- Burn extra calories and fat
- Low impact compared to heavy lifting or HIIT which gives your body time to recover from high impact work
- Helps promote more blood flow, reducing inflammation and soreness and improving cardiovascular function, mitochondrial and cellular health
- Reduce stress and cortisol levels
