do you have some good resources for reading more about this? a lot of the online discourse - peter attia, ‘zone 2’ , etc. - seems to say otherwise. Anna’s link above implies ‘vigorous’ aerobic is interchangeable with moderate at -50% time cost… so that seems to agree.They are a great deal more similar than most people realize. This being high intensity aerobic work, not bootcamp type smokers. Some notable differences, but for quality of life CV health they are interchangeable.
Ideally one does both, next best thing is either/or.
but it also seems to ignore idea of different adaptations in mitochondria? (i know very little about this)
I found a study called Generation 100 that favoured HIIT and Ronda Patrick recently interviewed someone who talked about HIIT increasing V02 max.
Generation 100-exercise training study for all seniors aged 70-75 in Trondheim.
Im asking not because i disagree with you but because reading about it all has been a bit overwhelming / confusing. And i like hill runs
