High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Study


PURPOSE: Our overall objectives are to:

  1. Assess mechanisms underlying HIIT-induced improvements in insulin resistance at the whole-body, tissue, and cellular levels; 
  2. Systematically compare different HIIT regimens to help identify effective “doses” of HIIT that may be optimal for improving metabolic health in obese adults; and
  3. Assess the ability/willingness of obese subjects to adhere to a long-term HIIT program.

Findings from these studies will greatly expand our understanding about the effects of HIIT on metabolic health, and will provide valuable information for development of programs aimed at maximizing key metabolic benefits of exercise.
