Event Description

Full Description:
Is HIIT hot or hated? High-intensity interval training from an exercise psychology perspective: In this talk, Dr Mary Jung will present research from her lab examining the affective response, enjoyment, preference, tolerance, and intentions to HIIT in inactive and overweight adults. Results examining adherence to HIIT versus traditional continuous exercise in people with prediabetes will also be discussed.

Go hard or just avoid the carbs? High-intensity interval training and low-carbohydrate diets as approaches for treating type 2 diabetes: Dr Jonathan Little has conducted several HIIT studies in patients with type 2 diabetes and will present some of these findings, including the results of a recent randomized controlled trial. Dr Little’s current work is examining how low-carbohydrate diets impact glucose control, cardiovascular health, and inflammation in type 2 diabetes and recent findings, along with unanswered questions, will be presented.
