Abstract Wood, KM, Olive, B, LaValle, K, Thompson, H, Greer, K, and Astorino, TA. Dissimilar physiological and perceptual responses between sprint interval training and high-intensity interval training. J Strength Cond Res 30(1): 244–250, 2016—High-intensity interval training (HIIT) and sprint interval training (SIT) elicit similar cardiovascular and metabolic adaptations vs. endurance training. No study, however, has investigated acute physiological changes during HIIT vs. SIT. This study…

Energy Metabolism in Continuous, High-Intensity, and Sprint Interval Training Protocols With Matched Mean Intensity
The comparable physiological reactions of [FFA], [GLY], and RER show that the activation of fat metabolism is not different between training regimes with different stress-to-pause-ratios, and mean intensity and time of exercise influence activation offat metabolism.
Physiological, Perceptual, and Affective Responses to Six High-Intensity Interval Training Protocols
The Tabata protocol elicited the highest ⋮O2 and RPE responses, and the least pleasant session-affect among the cycling trials, while the v⋬O2max elicitedThe highest ⓮O 2 and R PE responses and the lowest mean session-Affect amongThe running trials.
Comparison of Psychological and Physiological Responses to Imposed vs. Self-selected High-Intensity Interval Training.
Data suggest that intensity mediates affective responses rather than the mode of HIIE performed by the participant, which is surprising considering that H IIE is more intense and typically imposed on the participant.
Physiological and Performance Impacts After Field Supramaximal High-Intensity Interval Training With Different Work-Recovery Duration
The volunteers exhibited equal performance in both protocols, which resulted in a similar physiological response, despite this similarity, in comparison to H15, the H30 protocol presented lower CK activity post 48 and lactate levels after 10 min post protocol.
Differences in Physiological and Perceptual Responses to High Intensity Interval Exercise Between Arm and Leg Cycling
Overall, HIIE performed on the cycle ergometer elicits higher relative heart rate and blood lactate concentration and a more aversive affective valence, making these modes not interchangeable in terms of the acute physiological and perceptual response to interval based exercise.
Shorter sprints elicit greater cardiorespiratory and mechanical responses with less fatigue during time-matched sprint interval training (sit) sessions
SIT5s was demonstrated to be more efficient as exhibited by greater mechanical responses associated with a higher aerobic activity, when compared to the volume-matched SIT protocol of longer sprints, and simple monitoring tools could help practitioners to detect differences in acute fatigue after different SIT sessions.
Modified sprint interval training protocols. Part I. Physiological responses.
It is concluded that shorter SIT work bouts that target peak power generation increase exercise EE without compromising postexercise EE, though longer bouts promote greater postex exercise fat utilization.
The Acute Physiological and Perceptual Responses Between Bodyweight and Treadmill Running High-Intensity Interval Exercises
Objective The purpose of this study was to compare the acute physiological, perceptual, and enjoyment responses between bodyweight high-intensity interval exercise (BW-HIIE) and treadmill running


Metabolic Response of Different High-Intensity Aerobic Interval Exercise Protocols
Findings indicate that HIT performed at approximately 90% of V[Combining Dot Above]O2max is no more physiologically taxing than is steady-state exercise conducted at 70% V[ combining Dot Above], but the response during HIT is influenced by the work-to-rest ratio.
Physiological Responses to an Acute Bout of Sprint Interval Cycling
It is concluded that an acute bout of SIC elicits submaximal V[Combining Dot Above]O2 and cardiorespiratory responses during each interval that are above 80% of estimated maximal values.
Comparison of Responses to Two High-Intensity Intermittent Exercise Protocols
It is suggested that in addition to the benefit of reduced time commitment, a high-intensity interval protocol of calisthenics elicits vigorous cardiorespiratory and perceptual responses and may confer physiological adaptations and performance improvements similar to those reported for SIC.
Exertional Responses to Sprint Interval Training: A Comparison of 30-sec. and 60-sec. Conditions
It is suggested that shorter intervals may produce more favorable exertional responses that could positively affect future behavior because perceived exertion is significantly higher for sessions of exercise that utilize longer work intervals.
10 or 30-s sprint interval training bouts enhance both aerobic and anaerobic performance
Data indicate that 10-s (with either 2 or 4 min recovery) and 30-s SIT bouts are effective for increasing anaerobic and aerobic performance.
Sex-Specific Responses to Self-Paced, High-Intensity Interval Training With Variable Recovery Periods
Findings support the notion that women may demonstrate improved recovery during high-intensity exercise, as they will self-select intensities resulting in greater cardiovascular strain.
Continuous and High-Intensity Interval Training: Which Promotes Higher Pleasure?
Despite the same average intensity for both conditions, similar psychological responses under HIT and CT conditions were not observed, suggesting that the higher dependence on anaerobic metabolism during HIT negatively influenced the feeling scale responses.
Two weeks of high-intensity aerobic interval training increases the capacity for fat oxidation during exercise in women.
It is shown that seven sessions of HIIT over 2 wk induced marked increases in whole body and skeletal muscle capacity for fatty acid oxidation during exercise in moderately active women.
Adaptations to high-intensity training are independent of gender
Data show that adaptations to 6 days of low-volume HIT are similar in men and women matched for VO2max and physical activity, as well as reduced respiratory exchange ratio and heart rate during submaximal exercise.
Running sprint interval training induces fat loss in women.
Running SIT is a time-efficient strategy for decreasing body fat while increasing aerobic capacity, peak running speed, and fat-free mass in healthy young women.
