Combined effects of very short “all out” efforts during sprint and resistance training on physical and physiological adaptations after 2 weeks of training
RT and SIT protocols with very short “all out” efforts, either performed in isolation, or combined, demonstrated improvement in several physical fitness- and health-related parameters and CT was the most efficient exercise intervention with improvement observed in the majority of the parameters. Expand
Vascular Rehabilitation Benefits of Tribulus Terrestris (TT), Taurine and High Dose Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) Supplementation with Interval Walking Training Program after Surgical Vascular Bypass Treatment (Pilot Study)
Interval Walking Training Program on Tribulus Terrestris, Taurine and high dose of ALA had a significantly and successfully higher bypass potency and rehabilitation prognosis compare to patients without supplementation and postsurgical physical therapy concept. Expand


Sprint interval and moderate-intensity cycling training differentially affect adiposity and aerobic capacity in overweight young-adult women.
It is concluded that sprint-interval cycling reduces adiposity and increases aerobic capacity more than continuous moderate-intensity cycling of equal estimated energy expenditure in overweight/obese young women. Expand
Run sprint interval training improves aerobic performance but not maximal cardiac output.
Run SIT induces similar body composition, VO(2max), and performance adaptations as ET, but with no effect on Q(max), which suggests that adaptations with ET are of central origin primarily, whereas those with SIT are more peripheral. Expand
Running sprint interval training induces fat loss in women.
Running SIT is a time-efficient strategy for decreasing body fat while increasing aerobic capacity, peak running speed, and fat-free mass in healthy young women. Expand
High-Intensity Intermittent Exercise and Fat Loss
This review summarizes the results of HIIE studies on fat loss, fitness, insulin resistance, and skeletal muscle and suggests that it may be more effective at reducing subcutaneous and abdominal body fat than other types of exercise. Expand
Continuous and High-Intensity Interval Training: Which Promotes Higher Pleasure?
Despite the same average intensity for both conditions, similar psychological responses under HIT and CT conditions were not observed, suggesting that the higher dependence on anaerobic metabolism during HIT negatively influenced the feeling scale responses. Expand
Reducing the Intensity and Volume of Interval Training Diminishes Cardiovascular Adaptation but Not Mitochondrial Biogenesis in Overweight/Obese Men
While improvements in aerobic capacity and exercise performance were different between groups, changes in oxidative capacity were similar despite reductions in both training intensity and volume. Expand
Appetite, gut hormone and energy intake responses to low volume sprint interval and traditional endurance exercise
An acute bout of endurance exercise resulted in lower appetite perceptions in the hours after exercise than sprint interval exercise and induced a greater 24 h energy deficit due to higher energy expenditure during exercise. Expand
Enjoyment of high‐intensity interval training in an overweight/obese cohort: a short report
High‐intensity interval training may be an enjoyable form of exercise for overweight and obese men and women after initial introduction to this type of training and enjoyment levels may continue to increase following initial introduction. Expand
Effects of high-intensity interval training on cardiometabolic risk factors in overweight/obese women
Short-term interval exercise training may be effective for decreasing FM and improving exercise tolerance in overweight and obese women. Expand
High-intensity interval exercise induces 24-h energy expenditure similar to traditional endurance exercise despite reduced time commitment.
It is demonstrated that HIIT and END induce similar 24-h energy expenditure, which may explain the comparable changes in body composition reported despite lower total training volume and time commitment. Expand
