Abstract
Introduction: Supervised, laboratory based studies of high intensity interval training (HIIT) is effective at improving health markers in groups at risk of cardiovascular and metabolic disease. Studio cycling, incorporating aerobic and high intensity exercise, may offer a platform for the implementation of HIIT within the wider community. \ud Methods: Eight, overweight, physically inactive (<1.5 hr·wk-1) but otherwise healthy volunteers completed eight weeks of supervised studio cycling lasting 20-50 minutes 3 times per week. Participants underwent assessment for maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) body composition, blood lipids, glucose tolerance and insulin resista...
