Researchers Call it the Fastest (and Best) Way to Keep Every Cell in Your Body Young.

Let’s talk about the study in Cell Metabolism conducted by researchers at the Mayo Clinic (citation is at the bottom of this page).

What researchers at the Mayo Clinic wanted to know is: How does the type of exercise you do impact your body on a molecular level?

How does it change your cells and the way they function?

What researchers found is a “Fountain of Youth.”

To answer this question, they put two groups of test subjects to work exercising.

  • One group was “older” (age 65 to 80)

  • One group was “younger” (age 18 to 30)

Then they had each group perform different styles of exercises:

  • Style 1: Mixed Training – Cycling and resistance (lifting weights).

  • Style 2: Resistance Training – Lifting weights.

  • Style 3: HIIT – Shorter workouts with intervals only.

Over 12 weeks researchers monitored results for each age group and each workout style.

Results for the HIIT Group Were Incredible! “A 69% Increase in Mitochondrial Capacity” for Participants Over Age 65!

Over 12 weeks, younger participants (age 18-30) following the HIIT workout plan had a 49% increase in mitochondrial capacity.

Older participants (age 65-80) following the HIIT workout plan had a 69% increase in mitochondrial capacity.

What is “mitochondrial capacity?”

Most cells in your body contain mitochondria.

It’s the “powerhouse” of your cell—basically an organ inside your cell that works like a battery producing energy

Mitochondria take in nutrients, break them down, and turn them into energy.
