AIMS We investigated whether sprint interval training (SIT) was a time-efficient exercise strategy to improve insulin sensitivity and other indices of cardiometabolic health to the same extent as traditional moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT). SIT involved 1 minute of intense exercise within a 10-minute time commitment, whereas MICT involved 50 minutes of continuous exercise per session. METHODS Sedentary men (27±8y; BMI = 26±6kg/m2) performed three weekly sessions of SIT (n = 9… CONTINUE READING
