High intensity interval training has been shown to be more effective than moderate intensity continuous training for improving maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). However, no evidence supports the prescription of one specific protocol of high intensity interval exercise (HIIE) in this population. The purpose of this study was to compare the acute cardiopulmonary responses with four different single bouts of HIIE in order to identify the most optimal one… CONTINUE READING
