How HIIT and Resistance training can effect your Diabetes.

Updated: Dec 1, 2022

Living with diabetes; whether you are Type 1, Type 2 or pre diabetic shouldn’t differentiate you from those living without diabetes when it comes down to exercise. Whether you are new to exercise or participate in regular sport and activities, there are no criteria to what you can and can’t do within your diabetes. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and Resistance Training can allow you, as a diabetic to adapt to different training styles and methods where you can soon learn and adapt to how your body reacts to the increase in activity and begin to change the way you exercise with diabetes.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) vs. Resistance Training

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a flexible form of training that can be adapted into any daily routine. Small amounts of high intensity training can be highly beneficial to your health in comparison to longer periods of conventional cardiovascular exercise, such as continuous jogging or walking. Think about how you can fit HIIT in your daily life that will benefit you as an individual. Exercising before work, after work or any other convenient time can work for those who even live a busy life.

The truth behind resistance training is that it is highly beneficial for most individuals living with diabetes. Resistance training is made up of exercise movements that add tension to the muscles within the body, helping build muscle and increase overall strength. Other methods of resistance can include using resistance bands, weight machines and even exercise that relies on your own body weight to achieve the same results.

Adapting to exercising with diabetes shouldn’t fill you with doubt, fear and a lack of motivation. Exercise is a great way to release stress, achieve a clear mind and understand your body.
