Are you doing this?
Matt Cook here, and many fitness gurus and trainers are all telling men that they should eat and diet this way to build muscle and lose fat.
But what if I told you that it’s actually the opposite of what you should be doing?
This new study shows how harmful this practice really is and what it’s doing to your function as a man…
Don’t miss it.

Stop – this popular workout hurting men
There are a TON of exercise programs on the market today that embrace the HIIT philosophy.
HIIT stands for high intensity interval training.
Here’s a little bit of an explainer of how these workouts are put together:
HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training. The intensity in these workouts means there is little (if any) downtime built in. This workout is also comprised of interval training, which means exercises are done in bursts. They can start slow and become faster from one exercise to another. Typically, cardio and strength training are combined to create a well-rounded high-intensity interval training workout.
You can attend HIIT workouts at gyms or do them at home.
Lots of very popular gyms and expensive trainers offer them.
This type of training is often touted as being healthier and more effective than other types of exercise, but I’m not a big fan.
I don’t think it’s particularly good for you and it doesn’t extend your life.
So why bother training so much?
One of the things that drives me bonkers about our medical/healthcare system is JUST how much misinformation is out there about health and what to do to stay healthy.
Exercise info is no exception.
Lots of people who don’t really know what they are talking about say “this thing or that thing works.”
Which is why you need to look at the research.
A lot of that is driven by marketing hype.
It’s more profitable for companies to sell you a $120 a month gym membership than to say “go for a walk.”
That’s why I try to get quality information out to you so that you can make your own decisions about how to stay healthy.
In this study done in Norway, a trial was done with 1,567 participants with an average age of 73 who were mostly in good health.
They were assigned to two different groups, one HIIT training group and one moderate training group.
Of these 1,567 participants, 400 were assigned to two weekly sessions of high intensity interval training (HIIT), 387 were assigned to moderate intensity continuous training (MICT), and 780 to follow the Norwegian guidelines for physical activity (control group), all for five years.
I like this study because it was done over a 5 year period, which is a good time frame to get fairly reliable results.
It turns out that the much hyped HIIT exercise wasn’t any more protective than easier, moderate exercise.
The researchers found no difference in all cause mortality between the control group (4.7%, 37 participants) and combined HIIT and MICT group (4.5%, 35 participants).
The all cause mortality rates were almost identical and the rates for heart disease and cancer were also nearly identical.
That means you are just as likely to get sick and/or die with these high intensity workouts.
They also found no differences in cardiovascular disease or cancer between the control group and the combined HIIT and MICT group.
Unless you LOVE that kind of intense HIIT workout that you don’t really need to do anything like that.
It doesn’t really help.
These kinds of high intensity workouts raise stress hormone levels and are tough on your joints.
So they’re probably not the best idea for most people anyway.
When it comes to your health, I strongly encourage you to look at the data and not just take what’s popular as the truth.
It’s a much better idea to forge your own path.

Stop lifting weights — use this 90-year-old trick for gaining muscle mass and stamina without gym time
Despite what you may have been told, you do NOT have to kill yourself at the gym to maintain good muscle mass.
You do NOT even have to lift weights.
All it takes is a 45-second “trick” that’s been around since 1933.
And no, this has nothing to do with warming up, stretching, or drinking protein shakes.
This is the “lazy” way to gain greater muscle mass.
It works through a process called mitochondrial uncoupling:
