How important is the duration of your training session?

There has been a lot of talk recently that a short intense workout is just as good as a moderate workout over a longer period of time. I came across this article on https://au.be.yahoo.com/lifestyle/health-and-fitness/a/32705701/are-exercise-classes-a-good-workout-yahoo7-be/ , which referred to study conducted by MacMaster University claiming that, there was very little difference between results achieved by adult males cycling for just 10 minutes as opposed to 50 minutes. Unfortunately, this article failed to state the size of the study so it is hard to confirm the accuracy of the results of this study.  In any case, please don’t forget that your choice of the workout plan and level of intensity must match your level of fitness, strength as well as medical history. For example, if a 60 year old male who has been sedentary for the last 20 years of his life decides to join one the of the CrossFit group classes as a fast way to get fit, well it is a recipe for a disaster. There is a high risk of injury or a potential serious medical condition as a result of the workout plan not been appropriate for the participant.
