The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a crossfit-based high-intensity power training (HIPT) program on aerobic fitness and body composition. [] Key Method Healthy subjects of both genders (23 men, 20 women) spanning all levels of aerobic fitness and body composition completed 10 weeks of HIPT consisting of lifts such as the squat, deadlift, clean, snatch, and overhead press performed as quickly as possible.

It can be said that these high-intensity exercises that were applied has positive contribution to anthropometric and physiological characteristics in sedanteries.
Effects of Power-based Complex Training on Body Composition and Muscular Strength in Collegiate Athletes
It is suggested that the 6-week PCT program can positively alter body composition particularly for female athletes and significantly improve upper and lower body strength for both male and female athletes, which will contribute to improvement in athletic performance.

Effects of Exercise Modality During Additional “High-Intensity Interval Training” on Aerobic Fitness and Strength in Powerlifting and Strongman Athletes
The results support enhanced strength and aerobic fitness irrespective of exercise modality, and powerlifters and strongman athletes wishing to enhance their aerobic fitness should consider HIIT using an aerobic HIIT mode.
A comparison of CrossFit and concurrent training on myonectin, insulin resistance and physical performance in healthy young women.
It seems that CrossFit exercises by targeting multiple fitness components in one exercise session may allow participants to perform more activity in less time.
Effects of CrossFit training on lipid profiles, body composition and physical fitness in overweight men
It is concluded that 4 weeks of CrossFit training induces considerable changes in body composition, physical fitness and lipid profiles (except for HDL) in overweight people.

The relationship of aerobic capacity, anaerobic peak power and experience to performance in CrossFit exercise
Investigation of the relationship of aerobic capacity and anaerobic power to performance in two representative CrossFit workouts suggest that a history of participation in CrossFit competition is a key component of performance in Cross Fit workouts which are representative of those performed in Cross fit, and that, in at least one of these workouts, aerobiccapacity and an aerobic power are associated with success.
Cardiometabolic and Muscular Fatigue Responses to Different CrossFit® Workouts.
A vigorous intensity of exercise was noted in all three CrossFit® session modalities, with greater mean HRs detected in the "Cindy" and skip rope WODs than power clean WOD.
Comparing energy expenditures between a circuit weight training protocol and a steady state aerobic activity
While EE values were greater during the steady state aerobic activity, RPE values were higher during the CWT protocol, and these findings add to the limited literature on EE and RPE during CWT and steadyState aerobic activity of equivalent intensity.


Impact of exercise intensity on body fatness and skeletal muscle metabolism.
Six sessions of sprint interval training increases muscle oxidative potential and cycle endurance capacity in humans.
It is concluded that short sprint interval training (approximately 15 min of intense exercise over 2 wk) increased muscle oxidative potential and doubled endurance capacity during intense aerobic cycling in recreationally active individuals.
Effect of hyperoxic-supplemented interval training on endurance performance in trained cyclists.
Hyperoxic-supplemented interval training in the competitive season had less effect on endurance and high-intensity performance and physiology in trained endurance cyclists compared to interval trainingIn normoxia, therefore hyperoxic-Supplemented training at sea level appears to be not worthwhile for maximising performance in competitive endurance athletes.
The effects of training in hyperoxia vs. normoxia on skeletal muscle enzyme activities and exercise performance.
It is concluded that the additional training stimulus provided by training in H was not sufficient to produce greater increases in the aerobic capacity of skeletal muscle and whole body Vo(2 max) and exercise performance compared with training in N.
Comparison of air-displacement plethysmography with hydrostatic weighing and bioelectrical impedance analysis for the assessment of body composition in healthy adults.
Air-displacement plethysmography is an accurate method for assessing body composition in healthy adults and future studies should assess further the cause of the individual variations with this new method.
A new air displacement method for the determination of human body composition.
The present system's ability to measure the volume of inanimate objects was evaluated for accuracy, reliability, and linearity and is likely to enhance opportunities for the quick, simple and noninvasive measurement of body composition for both research and clinical applications.
Effect of sprint interval training on circulatory function during exercise in sedentary, overweight/obese women
Four weeks of SIT improve circulatory function during submaximal exercise and increases circulation function in sedentary, overweight/obese women.

There is an apparent disproportionate musculoskeletal injury risk from these demanding programs, particularly for novice participants, resulting in lost duty time, medical treatment, and extensive rehabilitation, and practical solutions to improve ECP prescription and implementation and reduce injury risk are of paramount importance.
Physical fitness and all-cause mortality. A prospective study of healthy men and women.
Higher levels of physical fitness appear to delay all-cause mortality primarily due to lowered rates of cardiovascular disease and cancer, and lower mortality rates in higher fitness categories also were seen for cardiovascular Disease and cancer of combined sites.
Accuracy and reliability of the ParvoMedics TrueOne 2400 and MedGraphics VO2000 metabolic systems
The VO2000 portable metabolic system was less reliable for measuring VO2 and VCO2 and generally overestimates VO2 at most cycling work rates and the TrueOne 2400 provides accurate and reliable results for the measurement of gas exchange variables.
