Tabata training will improve stress levels!

Tabata training will improve stress levels!

This exercise technique can help you improve stress levels.

The stress-relieving benefits of yoga and meditation are well-known, but sometimes it’s better not to take the foot off the pedal, personal trainer Lee Sutherland says.

“Exercise increases your brain’s production of endorphins, which are the feelgood neurotransmitters responsible for the coveted ‘runner’s high’, that feeling of euphoria and wellbeing,” she explains.

You don’t need to do an hour-long spin session. Instead, Sutherland suggests doing short bursts. “Tabata training is 20 seconds of cardio work, 10 seconds rest and repeated eight times,” she says. “It’s a great way to get that post-workout rush without raising levels of [the stress hormone] cortisol like a long-distance run can. The result is a perfect stress release.” Via bodyandsoul.com.au
