The effect of work-matched exercise intensity on β-cell function is unknown in people with prediabetes prior to clinical weight loss. We determined if short-term moderate continuous (CONT) versus high intensity interval (INT) exercise increased β-cell function. Thirty-one subjects (Age: 61.4±2.5 yr;
32.1±1.0 kg/m) with prediabetes (ADA criteria, 75g OGTT) were randomized to work-matched CONT (70% HRpeak) or INT (3 min 90% HRpeak and 3 min 50% HRpeak) exercise for 60min/d over 2-weeks. A 75g 2 hr OGTT was conducted after an overnight fast, and plasma glucose, insulin, C-peptide and FFA were determined for calculations of skeletal muscle (Oral Minimal Model; OMM), hepatic (HOMA-IR), and adipose (Adipose-IR) insulin sensitivity. β-cell function was defined from glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS, deconvolution modeling) and the disposition index (DI). GLP-1(active) and GIP were also measured during the OGTT, along with VO2peak and body composition. CONT and INT increased skeletal muscle, but not hepatic or adipose, derived DI ( P<0.05). Although both treatments tended to reduce fasting GLP-1(active) ( P=0.08), early phase GLP-1(active) increased post-CONT and INT training ( P<0.001). Interestingly, CONT exercise increased fasting GIP compared with decreases in INT ( P=0.02). Early and total phase skeletal muscle DI correlated with decreased total glucose area under the curve (r=-0.52, P=0.002 and r=-0.50, P=0.003, respectively). Independent of intensity, short-term training increased pancreatic function adjusted to skeletal muscle in relation to improved glucose tolerance in adults with prediabetes. Exercise also uniquely affected GIP and GLP-1(active). Further work is needed to elucidate the dose-dependent mechanism(s) by which exercise impacts glycemia.

This study aimed to investigate the impact of 3 isocaloric exercise programs on cardiac autonomic nervous system (ANS) functioning in children.
Our previous work employing a between-subject randomized controlled trial design suggests that exercising prior to memory encoding is more advantageous in enhancing retrospective episodic memory funct...
A key pathological component of obesity is chronic low-grade inflammation, which is propagated by infiltration of immune cells into tissues and overproduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Cytokines ...
High-intensity training is recognised as a time-efficient way of improving aerobic fitness. However, there is a lack of consensus regarding the temporal nature of adaptation response and which periphe...
The aim of the present study was to investigate if short-term, concurrent exercise training prior to hindlimb suspension (HLS) prevents or diminishes both soleus and gastrocnemius atrophy and to analy...
The aims of this clinical trial are to assess the impacts on vascular function tests and circulating biomarkers of a short-term (12-week) low-to-median intensity exercise training or ARBs ...
It is known from research that long-term exercise exposure in type 2 diabetes had positive effects. However, the effect of acute exercise in a patient group with already reduced cardiac fu...
Aim: To assess whether there are different training effects on glucose concentration and cardiorespiratory parameters of different high-intensity training protocols in patients with type 2...
The aim of this study is to investigate two different modalities of functional electrical stimulation (FES) leg exercise in sub-acute patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). The primary ou...
The purpose of this study will be to determine if personalized moderate intensity exercise training combined with high intensity interval training is more effective at improving training r...
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
