Therefore, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is presented as a time-efficient alternative to aerobic training ( Kilian et al., 2016 ; Kong, Sun, Liu, & Shi, 2016 ; Logan et

The Moderating Role of Recovery Durations in High-Intensity Interval-Training Protocols

Patrick P.J.M. Schoenmakers, Florentina J. Hettinga, and Kate E. Reed

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is regarded as a highly effective training modality to improve cardiorespiratory and metabolic functioning, and it is a common practice in training regimens of many athletes, particularly those involved in endurance events. 1 In HIIT, repeated periods of

In the present study, we compared 2 different high-intensity interval-training (HIIT) programs in highly trained rowers and tested the hypothesis

Medicine, 2018 ). One specific approach to improving health and fitness through exercise that has received considerable attention in the literature, and among the general population, is high-intensity interval training (HIIT), which incorporates repeated bursts of intense aerobic exercise with periods of

With this in mind, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) was developed with low-volume exercises. Furthermore

HIIT typically involves repeated bouts of high-intensity exercise interspersed with periods of low-intensity recovery or rest ( Shepherd et al., 2015 ). HIIT, as an intervention approach for previously inactive adults, has

Short- and Long-Term Effects of Concurrent Strength and HIIT Training in Octogenarians with COPD

Amelia Guadalupe-Grau, Susana Aznar-Laín, Asier Mañas, Juan Castellanos, Julián Alcázar, Ignacio Ara, Esmeralda Mata, Rosa Daimiel, and Francisco José García-García

To investigate the short- and long-term effects of concurrent strength and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) on octogenarian COPD patients, nine males (age = 84.2 ± 2.8 years, BMI = 29.3 ± 2.3) with low to severe COPD levels (2.1 ± 1.5 BODE index) underwent a supervised 9-week strength and HIIT exercise program. Training had a significant (p < .05) impact on senior fitness test scores (23–45%), 30-m walking speed (from 1.29 ± 0.29–1.62 ± 0.33 m/s), leg and chest press 1RM (38% and 45% respectively), maximal isometric strength (30–35%), and 6-min walking test (from 286.1 ± 107.2–396.2 ± 106.5 m), and tended to increase predicted forced vital capacity by 14% (p = .07). One year after the intervention all training-induced gains returned to their preintervention values except for the chest press 1RM (p <.05). Short-term concurrent strength and HIIT training increases physical fitness in the oldest-old COPD patients, and has potential long-term benefits.
