A single session of Sprint interval training increases total daily energy expenditure
MetadataShow full item record
Background: Sprint interval training (SIT) is known to elicit favorable physiological adaptations, including improved insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. Its utility for weight maintenance is unclear. Presumably any effects would be mediated by increased energy expenditure during both the exercise itself, and during recovery. Therefore, the objective of this study is to determine the effects of a single bout of SIT on 24-hour energy expenditure (EE). Methods: 24-hour EE was determined in 12 healthy men (age: 26 ± 2 years; body mass index: 23.6 ± 0.5 kg/m2; mean ± SE). After three days ...
