VO2max Fitness Age Can be Improved
I was especially interested when I saw an article in the New York Times online asking What's Your Fitness Age? The article cites research that directly supports Dr. Al Sear's PACE program, which I recently took up.
The article adds a new piece of research, which lends credence to improving your heart's reserve capacity as measured by VO2max. The only way currently known to do that is through short bursts of high intensity training.
The phrase "high intensity training" probably dissuades many out-of-condition and/or older adults from reading any further.
However, when people realize that better VO2max fitness can be achieved in as little as 12 minutes a day, they tend to take notice.
While you read, I'll be rebounding on my mini-trampoline.
