Purpose Recent meta-analyses indicate that sprint interval training (SIT) improves cardiorespiratory fitness (V˙O2max), but the effects of various training parameters on the magnitude of the improvement remain unknown. [...] Key Method Articles were excluded if they were not in English; if they involved patients, athletes, or participants with a mean baseline V˙O2max of >55 mL·kg−1·min−1 or a mean age <18 yr; and if an SIT trial was combined with another intervention or used intervals shorter than 10 s. A total…Expand
Effects of different protocols of high intensity interval training for VO2max improvements in adults: A meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.
TLDR
To maximize the training effects on VO2max, long-interval (≥2min), high-volume (≤15min) and moderate to long-term (≢4-12weeks) HIIT are recommended. Expand
Sprint Interval Training: What are the Clinical Implications and Precautions?
TLDR
The results confirm that SIT improves V̇O2max in this population, but they also report that this improvement is not attenuated with a reduced number of sprints, suggesting that shorter sprints of either 15 or 10 s do not reduce maximal oxygen uptake improvements. Expand
Research into the Health Benefits of Sprint Interval Training Should Focus on Protocols with Fewer and Shorter Sprints
TLDR
It is proposed that there is a need for a fundamental change in focus in SIT research in order to move away from further characterising the classic SIT protocol and towards establishing acceptable and effective protocols that involve minimal sprint durations and repetitions. Expand
Effect of High-Intensity Interval Training Versus Sprint Interval Training on Time-Trial Performance: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of the meta-analysis indicate that long-HIIT may be the optimal form of interval training to augment TT performance and additional research that directly compares HIIT exercise differing in work-bout duration would strengthen these results. Expand
Risk of bias and reporting practices in studies comparing VO2max responses to sprint interval vs. continuous training: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although a lack of superiority between SIT and MICT for improving VO2max is observed, the overall unclear risk of bias calls the validity of this conclusion into question. Expand
Reply to “Comment on Effect of High-intensity Interval Training Versus Sprint Interval Training on Time-Trial Performance: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis”
TLDR
The lack of consistency in intensity programming makes it difficult to claim that caloric expenditure is the primary factor influencing changes in maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) when exercise intensity is not precisely controlled. Expand
Adaptive Changes After 2 Weeks of 10-s Sprint Interval Training With Various Recovery Times
TLDR
Sprint interval training protocols induce metabolic adaptation over a short period of time, and the reduced recovery between bouts may attenuate fatigue during maximal exercise. Expand
Early Adaptations to a Two-Week Uphill Run Sprint Interval Training and Cycle Sprint Interval Training
TLDR
It is indicated that UST may be an effective alternative to SIT in healthy individuals and VO2peak values remained unchanged in both training groups, but time-to-exhaustion (TTE) was significantly increased in the UST group. Expand
Sprint exercise snacks: a novel approach to increase aerobic fitness
TLDR
CRF was similarly increased by a protocol involving sprint snacks spread throughout the day and a traditional SIT protocol in which bouts were separated by short recovery periods within a single training session. Expand
Effects of a novel exercise training protocol of Wingate-based sprint bouts dispersed over a day on selected cardiometabolic health markers in sedentary females: a pilot study
TLDR
Performing three dispersed WAnT bouts with a 4-hour recovery period between bouts throughout a day, 3 days per week for 8 weeks provides sufficient training stimulus for a robust increase in V̇O2peak, which is comparable with other previous SIT protocols with very short recovery intervals. Expand

Effects of sprint interval training on VO2max and aerobic exercise performance: A systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
Strong evidence support improvement of aerobic exercise performance and VO2max following SIT, which coincides with peripheral muscular adaptations, and future RCTs on long‐term SIT and underlying mechanisms are warranted. Expand
Sprint Interval Training Effects on Aerobic Capacity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Evaluation of effects and analysis of moderating variables consolidates the findings of small-sample studies and contributes to the practical application of SIT to improve cardiorespiratory fitness and health. Expand
Effect of 2 weeks of sprint interval training on health-related outcomes in sedentary overweight/obese men.
TLDR
2 weeks of SIT substantially improved a number of metabolic and vascular risk factors in overweight/obese sedentary men, highlighting the potential for this to provide an alternative exercise model for the improvement of vascular and metabolic health in this population. Expand
Effects of Low-Volume High-Intensity Interval Training (HIT) on Fitness in Adults: A Meta-Analysis of Controlled and Non-Controlled Trials
TLDR
Low-volume HIT produces moderate improvements in the aerobic power of active non-athletic and sedentary subjects and on Wingate peak and mean power, and more studies are needed to resolve the unclear modifying effects of sex and HIT dose on aerobic power and the unclear effects on sprint fitness. Expand
The Effects of Sprint Interval vs. Continuous Endurance Training on Physiological And Metabolic Adaptations in Young Healthy Adults
TLDR
The study results agree with the effectiveness of a 30 s all-out training program with a reduced time commitment for anthropometric, aerobic and anaerobic adaptation and eliminate doubts about its safety as a model. Expand
Effectiveness of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIT) and Continuous Endurance Training for VO2max Improvements: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Controlled Trials
TLDR
The meta-analysed effect of endurance training on VO2max was a possibly large beneficial effect and a likely moderate greater additional increase for subjects with lower baseline fitness, when compared with no-exercise controls. Expand
Effects of Acute Carbohydrate Supplementation on Endurance Performance
TLDR
Car carbohydrate supplements with an appropriate composition and administration regimen can have large benefits on endurance performance and the moderating effects of gender and salt were unclear. Expand
Muscle metabolism during sprint exercise in man: influence of sprint training.
TLDR
Data demonstrate that sprint training may have enhanced muscle oxidative but not glycolytic capacity and that Glycogen degradation during sprint exercise was unaffected by sprint training. Expand
Effects of sprint cycle training on human skeletal muscle.
TLDR
Although a trend was found for a decrease in the percentage of type IIb fibers, high-intensity sprint cycle training caused no significant changes in the fiber type distribution or cross-sectional area and data appear to support previous investigations that have suggested exercise-induced adaptations within the fast fiber population (IIb-->IIa). Expand
Adaptations to high-intensity training are independent of gender
TLDR
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. Expand
