Guten Tag,

new user here (from Germany), glad I found this place. Lot's of knowledgeable people here! My native language is German, so please bear with me if my English is not perfect.


I am 52 years old, slim and basically fit.

LDL is a bit high (130) but subtype A, no atherogenic subparticles. HDL is 62.
Trigs: 55.

HbA1c is also a bit high at around 5.7.

Blood glucose in the morning typically 100-105. I'd like to improve on that.
No meds, except fishoil and Magnesium.
Low-carb diet.

Now about exercise:


There are so many different kind of exercise, I can distinguish at least 3 major ones:


1.
Aerobic exercise (running or cycling with moderate speed 30-40 minutes, 3 times a week

2.
Anaerobic: Weight lifting or going to the gym, strength training
2a. Slow and hard (only 3-4 repetitions with max power)
2b. Faster and lighter: 2 or 3 sets with weights you can lift 10 times

3.
HIIT: High intensity, going for max. heartrate for a minute and then resting for 2 or 3 minutes, slow pace  and then repeat (10 times).

NOW: Among all these different exercises what would be the best to fight atherosclerosis and improve blood sugar?

In the past I have been doing aerobic (jogging) 3 times a week, 40 Minutes, moderate pace. That did not improve my blood sugar.

Any thoughts?


Thanks!

I need to re-research HIIT.  I have changed mine to 1min all out 1 min rest x 10 cycles, but may be overdoing it.

I used HIIT 3x per week and yoga or light weight lifting on 2 days and do nothing a few days a week.

I like the HIIT combined with strength training. I do the elliptical machine for the HIIT and lift weights for about 30 minutes.
