Student working on a research project.

Use Of High Intensity Interval Training In Modifying Risk Factors In Sedentary Middle-Aged Individuals

The purpose of this project is to determine if a novel high intensity interval training program can modify cardiovascular and metabolic risk factors in sedentary, middle-aged individuals, and to determine if this type of program is preferable over traditional training programs. A secondary purpose is to detremine the minimal exercise dose required to elicit health benefits.
