This study involved overweight and out-of-shape adults who were asked to complete high-intensity interval training for three months. The participants could perform one of two common types of training protocols— four minutes of fast jogging with a rest and then four more minutes of fast jogging, or 30 seconds of full-out effort, followed by rest, and then repeated three times.
While cardio workouts can improve health for everyone, some people benefit from the same type and amount of cardio training more than others.
