Event Description

Full Description:
Exercise guidelines for the management of obesity advocate high volumes of moderate intensity continuous training (MICT); however, most adults do not meet these recommendations. Interval training, including high intensity interval training (HIIT) and sprint interval training (SIT) are promoted as time-efficient exercise modalities for improving cardiorespiratory fitness, and are regularly touted in both the scientific and lay media as being superior for fat loss. However, despite the rapid acceptance of this message, there is limited quality evidence to support it.

This presentation will discuss the findings from a systematic review of the literature for the relative benefits of HIIT and SIT, when directly compared with MICT, for the modulation of body adiposity.

Dr Shelley Keating is a Research Fellow in the Centre for Research on Exercise, Physical Activity and Health within the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences.
