Everyone knows that exercise is a must for keeping diabetic blood sugars under wraps. However, a new study published in the Journal of Sports Sciences has found that intense interval training outperforms steady-state cardio in terms of blood sugar management.
The study included a group of nine newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic adults. The researchers asked one group to exercise with alternating bouts of intensity (interval training) while another was instructed to follow a standard 30 to 60 minute cardio workout. At the end of the 12-week intervention the interval trainers had better beta-cell function and insulin levels than those that relied on steady state cardio.
