Bro-Science

A derogatory term for misconceptions and ideas of questionable scientific credibility, passed around among laymen by word-of-mouth as if factually true.

Most examples of bro-science pertain to biology, fitness and sports where it most often circulates in fitness, athletic and bodybuilding circles. Here, many people want to know how to most effectively train but are either ignorant of or do not fully understand the actual science. (RationalWiki.org)

I recently read an online article in the Telegraph Lifestyle Women section titled; "Ditch those heart-thumping HIIT sessions: low intensity exercise is the best way to work out". Now, as someone who advocates and participates in HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) sessions, as well as doing regular LISS (Low intensity Steady State) exercise and knows a thing or two about fitness, I was interested to hear what the author had to say.
