BACKGROUND Low-volume high-intensity interval training (HIT) appears to be an efficient and practical way to develop physical fitness. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to estimate meta-analysed mean effects of HIT on aerobic power (maximum oxygen consumption [VO(2max)] in an incremental test) and sprint fitness (peak and mean power in a 30-s Wingate test). DATA SOURCES Five databases (PubMed, MEDLINE, Scopus, BIOSIS and Web of Science) were searched for original research articles published up to… CONTINUE READING
