The university of New England conducted a study on insulin resistance and HIIT in women with PCOS / PCOD in which a group of PCOS / PCOD women aged 18 and above were randomly allocated to one of two groups: an HIIT group or a control (non- exercise) group. The results showed that after 12 weeks of HIIT cardio workout, undertaken three times a week, the Pcos participants had significantly improved their VO2 max, peak power, and they observed a reduction in waist and hip circumference. The researchers concluded that doing just 60 minutes of vigorous exercise per week decreased a woman’s likelihood of getting metabolic syndrome by 22%.
This particular study and several more like it is a powerful testament to the benefits of high-intensity exercise for PCOS/ PCOD women. Research indicated that HIIT workouts can improve your insulin sensitivity, reduce your waist circumference, stimulate muscle growth and burn fat. HIIT helps for weight loss, reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome & brings harmony to your hormones
