Effects of HIIT on Metabolic Syndrome

2019-10-24 12:49:28 | BioPortfolio


The project aims to find out the differences between two different types of structured training interventions have on the lipid profile of persons with diagnosed dyslipidemia. Each training intervention will last for 12 weeks. Subjects participating in the project will undergo a series of tests before and after the training intervention which will allow us to make conclusions.


The purpose of this project is to compare the effect that two different types of aerobic training modes have on the lipid profile of subjects with pre-symptoms of metabolic syndrome. One training mode will involve High-Intensity Interval Training and the other will involve medium intensity continuous training. The desired outcomes of this project are to know the effects of both modes of training have on the long-term on the lipid profile in order to help develop a nonpharmacologic alternative to prevent or treat metabolic syndrome and to know how affective and enjoyment responses are affected by the different modes of training. The Project lasts for 16 weeks. Training will take place during weeks 3 and 14 of the project. The project will be described fully to the participants during the 1st week. In addition to this, their rights as participants will be explained in addition to any possible ethical issues that might require clarifying. Once the subjects have agreed to take part in the research they will undergo a series of tests in order to asses their cardiorespiratory fitness and their lipids profile. Before starting the training intervention participants will be randomly assigned to one of the 3 different groups; Control, Medium Intensity Continuous Training and Low Volume High-Intensity Interval Training. Between weeks 3 and 14 subjects will take part in 3 training sessions per week. At week 15 and 16 subjects will undergo the same tests as during week 1 and 2.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.

Depressive states usually of moderate intensity in contrast with major depression present in neurotic and psychotic disorders.

Usual level of physical activity that is less than 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity on most days of the week.
