How to slow down cellular ageing

Any kind of exercise is better than none, but it’s high-intensity interval training that’s been deemed best for reversing age-related changes at the cellular level.

A study published in Cell Metabolism has found that short bursts of intense aerobic activity, interspersed with longer stretches of moderate exercise, helps cells rebuild key organelles that deteriorate with ageing.
