Default Daily exercise - insulin sensitivity

Lately I have changed my way of exercising. Instead of one long intervall, mainly bike trips, in a bit moderate pace I have made a change: Three short daily but intense workouts on my indoor bike. Usually 10 + 10 + 15 minutes - in the morning, before lunch and before dinner. The result: better numbers after meals.

Today eating out in Lund: Ham, sauce and quite a lot of potatoes. After 50 minutes 6.8 (122) and 40 minutes later rapidly down to 4.1 (74). Googled on the net and found this article and translated it:

"The evidence suggests that more intensive training works better than the kind of exercise that is recommended today for type 2 diabetes.

- Something happens in the body during high-intensity exercise which we want to try to figure out, says Åsa Segerstrom .

She is a physical therapist and researcher at Lund University, where a sporting physiologically center now is built up. In collaboration with Lund University Diabetes Centre ( LUDC ), this includes research in order to find the best exercise for type 2 diabetics.

Already after one workout, you can see an impact on insulin sensitivity.

- It seems that it is better with short and intense workouts – but doing it more often, says Åsa Segerstrom . Perhaps it will do with a smaller amount of training than recommended today.

The intensity of the sessions has to be adapted to your own ability . In other words, it is not what you do that is crucial , but how strenuous the workout feels.

- for example workout at a gym, which works just fine because you get variation in intensity. In other studies one also found that combined exercise - cardio and strength training - has a good effect.

Running alternately fast and slow, or walking uphill is other kinds of high intensity training . Asa Segerstrom also says that one should not underestimate the little rushes of everyday life.

- It is probably the very intensity that is the keyfactor."
