Is doing HIIT exercises risky for seniors? And is permanent exercise able to lower that risk?
People who have been medically cleared to exercise can engage in regular HIIT. The evidence suggests that high-intensity interval training does not increase the risk of severe adverse cardiac events or musculoskeletal injuries. However, there are ways to minimize risks with an appropriate exercise prescription. Before beginning a HIIT program, it’s strongly recommended that all individuals seek medical clearance from their doctor.
