Have You Heard of the Hormone Irisin?

Updated: Jun 22, 2019

Another reason why short burst exercise surpasses longer workouts at low intensity!

Irisin has been called the exercise hormone because it’s only released during moderate exercise that activates genes to transform calorie storing white fat cells into brown fat cells that are thermogenic even after exercise! It also suppresses fat tissue formation.

Researchers also found that Irisin dampens the inflammatory cells and higher levels of Irisin reduced arterial plaque buildup.

So the next time you are at the gym, you may want to consider cutting your gym work in half and doubling up on the intensity. As much as I love yoga it’s not going to produce irisin. However, it is beneficial for my mind and spirit. A combination of short burst training with yoga and flexibility is the perfect balance for a healthier and happier you!
