Taubes vs. Guyenet on Rogan, Cardio vs. HIIT and Psychedelics

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
