Blood pressure dropped and everyday tasks such as getting out of a chair or carrying shopping became easier, after the participants had carried out two one-minute sessions a week for six weeks.
High-intensity training, or HIT, purports to offer at least the same benefits as conventional activity but in the fraction of the time and is the subject of much research.
The latest study is the first to focus on whether it may help older people. Researcher John Babraj put six men and women aged over 60 through their paces in his lab twice a week for six weeks. Each session began with them pedalling all-out on an exercise bike for six seconds before resting for at least a minute to allow their heart to recover and then giving it their all for another six seconds.
Researchers from Abertay University in Dundee pictured said short sessions of high intensity exercise could help ease the 'astronomical' cost of ill-health in the elderly. Although they began by doing six six-second sprints, by end of the study, they were able to do ten per session — adding up to 60 seconds of activity.
After just six weeks, blood pressure fell by 9 per cent and day-to-day activities were easier, the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society reports. Current guidelines say pensioners need to do at least two and a half hours of cycling or fast walking a week, plus two sessions of yoga, gardening or other activities that strengthen muscles.
Dr Babraj said that those who do not have an exercise bike can get the same benefit from six-second runs up a steep hill and added: Andrew Marr has blamed the stroke he suffered on experimenting with high intensity exercise.
He said it could be argued that short, sharp sessions put less strain on the heart than lengthier, less intensive ones. BBC presenter Andrew Marr has blamed the stroke he suffered last year on experimenting with high intensity exercise. Dr Babraj cautioned that people should check with their doctor before embarking on a training programme.

From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky Russia , Bela Kun Hungary , Rosa Luxembourg Germany , and Emma Goldman United States , this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others.
With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders Needless to say, the most intense passions of revenge have been excited in the breasts of the Russian people The fact that in many cases Jewish interests and Jewish places of worship are excepted by the Bolsheviks from their universal hostility has tended more and more to associate the Jewish race in Russia with the villainies, which are now being perpetrated.
Winston Churchill, Sunday Illustrated Herald, London, England, February 8, "The German revolution is the achievement of the Jews; the Liberal Democratic parties have a great number of Jews as their leaders, and the Jews play a predominant role in the high government offices. Therefore it might easily be said that all the newly-rich and war- profiteer, is an ancient of a thousand years The immense majority of the influentials in Austrian Socialism were and are still Jews That is what I oppose - a power that has no country and that can order the young men of all countries out to death.
Fourteen million Jews stand together as one man, to declare war against Germany. The Jewish wholesaler will forsake his firm, the banker his stock exchange, the merchant his commerce and the pauper his pitiful shed in order to join together in a holy war against Hitler's people.
Jabotinsky insisted that all energies be expended to force the Congress to join the boycott movement. Nothing less than a 'merciless fight' would be acceptable, cried Jabotinsky.
We [Jews] must destroy, destroy, destroy them, not only with the boycott, but politically, supporting all existing forces against them to isolate Germany from the civilized world It is not sufficient that you should buy no goods made in Germany.
You must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German-made goods or who patronises German ships or shipping There are reasons for the assumption that our share in this fight is of general importance.
We shall start a spiritual and material war of the whole world against Germany. Germany is striving to become once again a great nation, and to recover her lost territories as well as her colonies.
But our Jewish interests call for the complete destruction of Germany The Jews owned the largest and most important Berlin newspapers, and made great inroads on the educational system. The goal of Judaism of today is: We demand a complete blockade of trade, the importation of raw materials stopped, and retaliation towards every German, woman and child. A will be formed to bring the German and Italian economic systems to their knees.
Israel has been attacked. Let us, therefore, defend Israel! Against the awakened Germany, we put an awakened Israel. And the world will defend us. November "The millions of Jews who live in America, England and France, North and South Africa, and, not to forget those in Palestine, are determined to bring the war of annihilation against Germany to its final end. We wish to do so in a way entirely consonant with the general scheme of British action, and therefore would place ourselves, in matters big and small, under the co-ordinating direction of His Majesty's Government.
The Jewish Agency is ready to enter into immediate arrangements for utilizing Jewish manpower, technical ability, resources, etc. Few papers will risk any attack on the Jews, however well-founded, for fear of appearing even distantly anti-Semitic. Twenty-five percent of the inhabitants of New York are Jews. During the Great War we bought off this huge American Jewish public by the promise of the Jewish National Home in Palestine, held by Ludendorff to be the master stroke of Allied propaganda as it enabled us not only to appeal to Jews in America but to Jews in Germany as well.
Stronger than all fronts together is our front, that of Jewry. We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based.
We are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going. The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance.
And we are the Trojan Horses in the enemy's fortress. Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the most valuable aid for victory. The Soviet State Publishing House is preparing the publication of another "Black Book," a documentary record of the German massacre of approximately six million European Jews. According to the Soviet editors, the Germans killed between five and six million Russian, Polish and Western European Jews, and an additional half million are being murdered in Hungary now.
The war time Premier Winston Churchill said he thought the problem of a National Jewish Home in Palestine was too big to be handled by one single nation alone.
I said at once, "The Unnecessary War. And Germany gave them refuge. And they were treated very nicely. And here they sold Germany down the river for no reason at all other than they wanted Palestine as a so-called "Jewish commonwealth. There was no sentiment against those people merely on account of their religious belief. It was all political. It was anything but religious When Germany realized that the Jews were responsible for her defeat, they naturally resented it.
But not a hair on the head of any Jew was harmed. Posted by Chris Moore at 3: Introduction by Chris Moore -- This is an interesting discussion vis-a-vis The new anti-Semitism, and the campaign to silence American critics of Israel by Jeff Warner and Dick Platkin on the Mondoweiss blog regarding the authors' claim that Jewish students and faculty were once victims of real anti-Semitism on American campuses from the early 20th Century through the early s in the form of admission quotas, glass ceilings on high academic and administrative positions, and discriminatory practices by fraternities and sororities.
The discussion took place in the Comments section of the blog. I found it interesting because I too was skeptical of the veracity of this particular claim, and suspect it's just another of those mythical Jewish victim shtick narratives that gets handed down over generations, exaggerated a little bit more each time it's handed off kind of like what became known fist as the Holocaust and then to distinguish the Jewish angle even further, the Shoah I've long wondered if it wasn't an anti-Catholic, Zionist strain of Protestantism perhaps in conjunction with self-evidently Catholic-hating Zionist Jews who forever declare that "Hitler was a Catholic!
Kennedy, in part because he was not on board the exaggerated "evil Germany" and "evil Western Civilization" Zionist-Marxist-Imperialist victim-shtick narrative, and in fact in the wake of WWII expressed tremendous compassion for the German people, and was highly critical of Russian and British looting, pillaging and raping, and even somewhat critical of U. No doubt the warped, vengeance-seeking, Zionist strain of Protestantism always held that against him.
Here's part of the Comments section discussion that emphasizes this Zionist anti-Catholicism in particular: August 26, at 1: Just a ridiculous statement. In fact, there were no real quotas affecting Jewish students during these years— there were attempts at lots of elite universities to make them more nationally focused universities, by taking students from the other 40 states of the union, not huddled around the Northeast corridor.
That is, there was positive discrimination for kids from the states that people in the Northeast have always hated Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, etc , and as a result, many Jews living in the Northeast complained that this was pro-Christian discrimination or anti-Jewish discrimination in the same way that whites currently complain about affirmative action. More recently there is a fervent anti-Muslim fervor among lots of atheists and Jewish profs at elite universities— the same type of people that are anti-Catholic are often equally anti-Muslim.
August 26, at 4: And I do not know why the authors rolled that old dog out in their essay. Either they have an interest in keeping the untrue meme alive or they have been brainwashed to believe it and keep on repeating it. I think the latter. I think it was Galbraith who said that is is still and always PC in America to be completely anti Catholic. All that is really besides the point — and so what — as what I wonder is why it seems there is a celebration, even a nurturing of ideas of anti Jewish in history as a part of Jewish identity?
What other group does that? And why would any group do so? August 26, at 6: This is what Madrid mentioned, but from what the jewishvirtuallibrary says there was also anti-semitism at work. I see no reason to doubt it.
American Christians have about as little to complain about as any group in history—just some ridicule by secularists in Hollywood sometimes—and evangelicals sometimes talk like mass persecution is just around the corner.
Every group that has suffered anything claims victim status, some with more justification than others. Even white males in the US get into the act sometimes.
Whether the attempt to grab moral high ground is justified is just something one has to figure out on a case-by-case basis. As for the rest of your post, it is too banal and ridiculous to respond to, but briefly. That is, after all, essentially weak and pathetic. I witnessed Muslin women in the Balkans removing a plaque placed in the memory of the horrific rapes and killings in a sports stadium. This was not the self identity they wanted to cultivate and nurture.
As for the Christian fear about mass persecution right around the corner:
