Physiological Responses to High-Intensity Interval Exercise Differing in Interval Duration
Despite a 4-fold difference in interval duration that produced greater between-interval transitions in V[Combining Dot Above]O2 and HR, both protocols were rated similarly for perceived exertion and enjoyment.
Effects of Work and Recovery Duration and Their Ratio on Cardiorespiratory and Metabolic Responses During Aerobic Interval Exercise.
When interval exercise protocols are executed at similar effort (until exhaustion), work and recovery durations do not, in general, affect exercise time at high oxygen consumption and HR rates, however, as work duration decreases, a higher work-to-recovery ratio should be used to achieve and maintain high cardiorespiratory stimulus.
Physiological Responses During High-Intensity Interval Training in Young Swimmers
This study analyzed whether 100- and 200-m interval training in swimming differed regarding temporal, perceptual, and physiological responses and suggested that coaches should consider that nx100-m/15-s is perceived as less difficult to perform compared with nx200- m/30-s for the first 800-m when managing the best strategy to be implemented for aerobic power training.
The exercise intensity at maximal oxygen uptake (i⩒O2max): Methodological issues and repeatability
The present results suggest that i⩒O2max determined directly during a maximal incremental test is repeatable and provides a very good estimate of the minimum exercise intensity that elicits ⩒ O2max.
Physiological responses to "all-out" and even-paced cycling intervals
The findings indicate irrespective of work completed, greater physiological stress was observed within an “all-out” interval training approach when compared with both athlete- and computer- controlled conditions, resulting in greater latent fatigue as measured by 4 km time trial performance.
Impact of high-intensity interval duration on perceived exertion.
These findings suggest that 30-s HIT protocols limit the perceptual drift that occurs during exercise, in comparison to HC exercise, and could have implications for the prescription of interval training in overweight sedentary adults.
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.
Interval running with self-selected recovery: Physiology, performance, and perception
Differences in the afferent cue utilisation of participants likely explain the large levels of inter-individual variability observed and different sources of afferent information underpinned decision-making during SS.
Adrenal Cortical Responses to High-Intensity, Short Rest, Resistance Exercise in Men and Women
Evaluated physiological effects of an acute, high-intensity (75% 1-repetition maximum), short rest resistance exercise protocol, confirming that relative intensity and rest period length are important factors determining magnitude of metabolic and adrenal stress.
Cardiorespiratory Responses to Shallow Water Exercise: A Sex Comparison
Perceptual selfregulation of intensity is a viable approach to controlling physiological load during SWE and HIISWE elicited physiological and perceptual responses categorized as “vigorous” to “near maximal to maximal” intensity.


The impact of rest duration on work intensity and RPE during interval training.
Under self-paced conditions, varying rest duration in a range of 1 to 4 min had limited impact on performance during repeated 4-min high-intensity exercise bouts.
Influence of continuous and interval training on oxygen uptake on-kinetics.
Six weeks of low-intensity continuous training and high-intensity interval training were similarly effective in enhancing VO2 on-kinetics following step transitions to moderate and severe exercise in previously untrained subjects.
Interval training program optimization in highly trained endurance cyclists.
The present data confirm prior research, in that repeated supramaximal HIT can significantly improve 40-km time trial performance, and it is shown that when HIT incorporates P(max) as the interval intensity and 60% of T(max).
Interval Training for Performance: A Scientific and Empirical Practice
Using short-interval training, it seems to be very difficult to elicit exclusively anaerobic metabolism, but studies have clearly demonstrated that the contribution of glycogenolysis to the total energy demand was considerably less than that if work of a similar intensity was performed continuously.
Effect of short-term sprint interval training on human skeletal muscle carbohydrate metabolism during exercise and time-trial performance.
It is concluded that short-term SIT improved cycling TT performance and resulted in a closer matching of glycogenolytic flux and pyruvate oxidation during submaximal exercise.
Interval training at VO2max: effects on aerobic performance and overtraining markers.
Performance and aerobic factors associated with the performance were not altered by the 4 wk of intensive training at vVO2max despite the increase of plasma noradrenaline.
Interval Training and Performance
It is suggested that types of training be identified based on the specific characteristics of each particular type of training rather than placing all types of intermittent training in an all-inclusive category called ‘interval training’.
The Scientific Basis for High-Intensity Interval Training
It seems that, for athletes who are already trained, improvements in endurance performance can be achieved only through high-intensity interval training (HIT) and investigation into the optimal HIT programme for eliciting performance enhancements in highly trained athletes is required.
Time limit and time at VO2max' during a continuous and an intermittent run.
The v50%delta is sufficient to stimulate VO2max in both intermittent and continuous running, and the intermittent exercise results better than the continuous one in increasing maximal aerobic power, allowing longer time atVO2max and obtaining higher peak VO2 with lower lactate accumulation.
