Metabolic Response of Different High Intensity Aerobic Interval Exercise Protocols

Although high intensity sprint interval training employing the Wingate protocol results in significant physiological adaptations, it is conducted at supramaximal intensity and is potentially unsafe for sedentary middle-aged adults. We therefore evaluated the metabolic and cardiovascular response in healthy young individuals performing four high intensity (~90% VO2max) aerobic interval training (HIT) protocols with similar total work output but different work-to-rest-ratio. Eight young physically active subjects participated in five different bouts of exercise over a 3-wk period. Protocol one consisted of 20 min continuous exercise ~70% of VO2max, whereas protocols 2, 3, 4, and 5 were interval based with a work/active rest duration (in seconds) of 30/30, 60/30, 90/30, and 60/60 respectively. Each interval protocol resulted in ~10 minutes of exercise at a workload corresponding to ~ 90% VO2max, but differed in the total rest duration. The 90/30 HIT protocol resulted in the highest VO2, HR, RPE, and blood lactate whereas the 30/30 protocol resulted in the lowest of these parameters. The total caloric energy expenditure was lowest in the 90/30 and 60/30 protocols (~150 kcal), whereas the other 3 protocols did not differ (~195 kcal) from one another. The immediate post-exercise blood pressure response was similar across all protocols. These finding indicate that HIT performed at ~90% of VO2max is no more physiologically taxing than steady state exercise conducted at 70% VO2max, but the response during HIT is influenced by the work-to-rest ratio. This interval protocol may be used as an alternative approach to steady state exercise training, but with less time commitment.
