    As early as our 30s, muscle strength and bone density begin to decline. When we hit our 40s, a drop in levels of growth hormone leads to reduced muscle mass, increased fat and reduced energy levels. In turn, this all contributes to a slower metabolism. Women may also notice more fat storage around the abdomen due to a drop in oestrogen and should be aware that this also causes a sharp decrease in bone density.

    High-intensity interval training combines very short bursts of vigorous exercise with even shorter recovery work or rests.

Nobody wants to spend hours sweating in the gym on a hot summer's day, which is why a regular HIIT session is just what you need to put a spring in your step over the next couple of months – and hopefully beyond.
