To investigate the chronic and acute effects of high‐intensity interval training (HIIT) and moderate‐intensity continuous training (MICT) on pressure pain thresholds (PPT) in overweight men. 
Exercise-induced hypoalgesia after acute and regular exercise: experimental and clinical manifestations and possible mechanisms in individuals with and without pain
This review describes methodology used in the assessment of the manifestations of exercise-induced hypoalgesia in humans and previous findings in individuals with and without pain. PossibleExpand
Are endogenous opioid mechanisms involved in the effects of aerobic exercise training on chronic low back pain?: a randomized controlled trial.
Aerobic exercise-related enhancements in endogenous pain inhibition, in part EO-related, likely contribute to these benefits of an aerobic exercise intervention for CLBP management. Expand
High-intensity interval training for reducing blood pressure: a randomized trial vs. moderate-intensity continuous training in males with overweight or obesity
The BP-lowering effects of exercise training are more prominent in those with higher baseline BP, with stronger correlation in HIIT than MICT. Expand
The effect of high-intensity interval training and moderate-intensity continuous training on aerobic fitness and body composition in males with overweight or obesity: A randomized trial
Improvements in aerobic fitness were comparable between work-matched HIIT and MICT, and short-term cycling training did not improve body composition in males with overweight or obesity. Expand
Conditioned pain modulation in elite athletes: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Despite nominally favoring higher CPM in elite athletes, aggregate results indicate no significant difference compared to healthy controls, and athletes do not have remarkable endogenous pain modulation compared to controls. Expand
A preliminary investigation about the observation of regional skin temperatures following cumulative training loads in triathletes during training camp.
The objective was to measure skin temperature in triathletes during a training camp with cumulative training load and preliminary results have important implication on the use of skin basal temperature data to monitor exercise recovery. Expand
A retrospective international study on factors associated with injury, discomfort and pain perception among cyclists
Logistic regression models estimated odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals that examined factors associated with reporting overuse/fatigue injury, acute injury, body discomfort, saddle discomfort, and pain while cycling found that pain perception was associated with a number of factors such as ride to work, core training, cycling experience, saddlecomfort, pain while not cycling.

The impact of high-intensity interval training and moderate-intensity continuous training regimes on cardiodynamic parameters in isolated heart of normotensive and hypertensive rats.
HIIT induced more significant increase of contractile and relaxation parameters of the isolated rat heart, especially in hypertensive animals, and MIT was connected with cardiac depression in normotensive conditions, while HIIT leads to cardiac depressionIn hypertensive rats. Expand
The impact of aerobic and anaerobic training regimes on blood pressure in normotensive and hypertensive rats: focus on redox changes
Findings of the present study pointed out that contrary to normotensive conditions, in hypertensive conditions both training regimes reduced the BP levels, which was more prominent in case of HIIT. Expand
The Effects of Aerobic and Anaerobic Training on Aerobic and Anaerobic Capacity
Aerobic capacity is the capacity of large skeletal muscle groups to adapt to work by using energy obtained as a result of aerobic metabolism. VO2max is a good indicator of aerobic capacity and isExpand


The effects of high‐intensity interval training vs. moderate‐intensity continuous training on body composition in overweight and obese adults: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
The objective of this study is to compare the effects of high‐intensity interval training (HIIT) and moderate‐intensity continuous training (MICT) for improvements in body composition in overweightExpand
Is high‐intensity interval training more effective on improving cardiometabolic risk and aerobic capacity than other forms of exercise in overweight and obese youth? A meta‐analysis
The scientific interest in high‐intensity interval training (HIIT) has greatly increased during recent years and is likely to continue to increase in the coming years. Expand
Temporal summation of heat pain modulated by isometric exercise
The purposes of study 1 and study 2 were to examine the influence of exhaustive and non‐exhaustive isometric exercise on temporal summation of heat pain in men and women. Expand
The role of excess subcutaneous fat in pain and sensory sensitivity in obesity
Previous studies suggest pain sensitivity may be decreased in obesity, but it is unknown whether this is a global or a site‐specific phenomenon related to the amount of excess fat.
Body mass index and distribution of body fat can influence sensory detection and pain sensitivity
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of body fat percentage and its distribution on sensory detection and pain sensitivity responses to experimentally induced noxious stimuli inExpand
Perception of pain following aerobic exercise.
It is concluded that an acute bout of exercise is associated with changes in pain perception, which were accompanied by lower SBP and higher HR in the exercise condition 5 min post-exercise. Expand
High but not moderate-intensity endurance training increases pain tolerance: a randomised trial
The repeated exposure to a high-intensity training stimulus increases muscle pain tolerance, which is independent of the improvements in aerobic fitness induced by endurance training, and may contribute to the increase in high- intensity exercise tolerance following HIIT. Expand

In conclusion, interval exercise (85% HRR) has analgesic effects on experimental pain perception, in addition to its cardiovascular, muscular, and metabolic advantages may promote its inclusion in pain management programs. Expand
