His stated goal is to make exercise available for everybody by making it easy and time I wish he had the same goals for this book as well.
For example, this book doesn't explain what's the difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercise and jumps into which exercise uses which mode
He also has a confusing array of exercises and given the options you end up wondering where should you start or do.
Even in exercise details, he starts with background and an image of what the interval looks like but near the end of each exercise he tells you who should do this and that's when you realize its core people above 60 or power athletes etc. this section should be first so you can understand if you need to read this or not. Even better it should just recommend what exercise you should follow if you're getting started and your or in an older demographic, or have access to a gym or if you're an athletes etc.
The book makes the same point multiple times trying to prove again an again that HIIT works and gets very repetitive after the 5th study. We're sold on the book, what we need is to hear a simple "this is what I mean by efficient exercise and this is what we need to do" and we'll do it and the results is the proof that matters.
My recommendation is to go through the exercises in this book, select one that suits you, you're probably well off skipping everything else.
On the cusp of turning 50 I was feeling my age despite having just run 18:55 for 5K, not too shabby for an older guy. Thirty miles a week of mostly long slow distance left me fatigued to the point of irritability, a disinterest in running, and low grade upper respiratory issues that hung around like one of those tenacious northeast winters. With small kids to attend to I needed a radical change in my workout regimen. Intuitively I moved to HIIT in a slow and progressive manner and rediscovered a fountain of youthful energy, and athleticism in my 50's and 60's.
Now Dr. Martin Gibala offers us the science behind how to do less exercise, enjoy it more, and experience a level of wellness unparalleled. Raised in a Jewish family that was not religious, I was never one to sit in a pew and be moved to shout Amen! Well, Dr. Gibala here is a well deserved Amen!!!! from an ardent and devoted choir member. I am convinced that as a result of HIIT(Hight Intensity Interval Training), I found the energy, determination, focus, and resilience from stress to graduate as a psychoanalyst, release my first CD, and publish my memoir.
I will tell you readers that in the middle of reading this book I so gushed with enthusiasm that I turned to my wife and chewed her ear off. For years I had been singing the praises of HIIT. Most people looked at me with a vacant and disinterested stare Here was a respected exercise physiologist, a leader in his field writing as if to me me and telling me I was not crazy to believe that I had put the aging process in s choke hold.
Thank you Dr. Gibala for your landmark book!

Think this is more for the seasoned athlete than the average person who’s just trying to stay reasonably fit.
