    Planning to watch this or record it. Apparently there's research the programme makers have done that you only need 3 minutes of exercise to stay fit which sounds unbelievable.

    Since they don't play live broadcasts on their website, I'll just wait a few weeks till they post it - full length without commercials - on YouTube.

    I tried ding HIIT cardio in my house for about 15 minutes cycles - doing a high intensity exercise for about a minute with about 30 seconds rest in between. I was pretty exhausted afterwards.

    I decided I liked regular cardio better. But - I am wondering if I just decided to do like 3 minutes of this in my house every day - in addition to my other workouts, would I get extra benefits???

    Hmmm... I wish I could see this full episode. Maybe they'll play this on BBC America???

    @ChrisLDN - Thanks for posting the link. The article was helpful, too.

    Off topic, was it just me, or did the sound effects in the background of the video - which I assume was meant to be some sort of music track - just sounded like someone farting????

    after viewing the link and scanning the article it seems to me this was packaged as interval training in the past and is primarily aimed at medical markers, not necessarily body composition or muscle hypertrophy.
    years ago Mike Mentzer reintroduced his system of HIT for muscle growth called HEAVY DUTY. as before every thing seems to come to health and fitness in cycles
