process is becoming more and more science driven to increase the predictability of improvements and justify such investments. 2 Combat sports are characterized by high-intensity intermittent actions interspersed by low-intensity recovery actions or referee stoppage. Olympic combat sports can be divided

, challenges, tackles, and changes of direction. 1 – 3 Intermittent high-intensity training consisting of straight-line (STL) or change-of-direction (COD) running is largely used by coaches to improve aerobic fitness and the ability to accelerate and change direction. 3 – 5 Previous findings 3 , 5 suggest

Intermittent exercises are frequently used by athletes to improve aerobic fitness. These are defined by exercise intensity and duration, recovery intensity and duration, number of repetitions, and number of series. Intermittent exercise is also an intrinsic characteristic of children’s spontaneous

damage differs depending on the exercise stimulus, with endurance modalities associated with high metabolic costs and relatively low mechanical stress 10 compared with eccentric exercise associated with larger mechanical stress. 11 In contrast to this, intermittent exercise is shown to induce both

investigated. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of exercise intensity and sedentary computer games on physical activity compensation in preadolescent children. It was hypothesized that 20 two-minute high-intensity intermittent activity breaks would elicit a compensatory reduction in total

’s ability to perform repeated bouts of short-duration, higher-intensity physical activity without accruing undue fatigue. Indeed, a review of studies exploring high-intensity intermittent activity in children noted that children demonstrate a rapid recovery from brief high-exertion activity and prefer to

. When it comes to intermittent high-intensity efforts though, such as those featured in the training and competition of many high performance sports, the original CP model has had limited utility. Advancing earlier research by Morton and Billat 3 and Ferguson et al, 4 Skiba et al 5 – 8 have since

intermittent physical activity breaks on BP in preadolescent children are lacking and warrant further investigation. Data from the pediatric exercise literature also suggest improvements in BP responses related to intermittent activity may be intensity dependent. Using an observational study design, Tsioufis

). Discrepancies between step counting methods could indicate underlying differences in sensitivity (i.e., threshold acceleration needed to trigger a step) or differences in their response to intermittent activities. Some manufacturers use step counting methods that eliminate steps taken during brief, intermittent

Intermittent hypoxia training (IHT) is initially recognized by the sports medicine community as a potentially useful
