Lecturer in Human Physiology, Dr Fergus Guppy recently presented work at the Bone Research Society/British Society of Matrix Biology Joint meeting in Edinburgh.
Dr Guppy said of his work “This project is early pilot work that suggests HIIT may have the potential to improve bone mass. HIIT is a very popular form of exercise that involves short but very intense bouts of exercise. It has been shown to improve things like body composition and is beneficial for glucose tolerance, very important for the prevention of diabetes. This is the first work that shows it may also be good for our bones.”
