Abstract

Purpose: investigate the central, peripheral, and subjective responses to an acute self- paced (SP) and traditional (TRAD) high-intensity interval training (HIIT) protocol. Methods: Sixteen recreationally trained individuals volunteered to participate in two HIIT and one maximal cycle ergometer exercise tests. Physiological responses were assessed during each condition. Results: Peak and average oxygen consumption, peak heart rate, average work intensity and post-exercise blood lactate were all significantly higher in the TRAD HIIT trial. Discussion: TRAD HIIT protocols appear to provoke a greater physiological and metabolic demand in recreational exercisers. Future research should investigate the chronic effect of SP and TRAD HIIT programs.

Self-paced high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is less physiologically demanding than traditional HIIT

Purpose: investigate the central, peripheral, and subjective responses to an acute self- paced (SP) and traditional (TRAD) high-intensity interval training (HIIT) protocol. Methods: Sixteen recreationally trained individuals volunteered to participate in two HIIT and one maximal cycle ergometer exercise tests. Physiological responses were assessed during each condition. Results: Peak and average oxygen consumption, peak heart rate, average work intensity and post-exercise blood lactate were all significantly higher in the TRAD HIIT trial.
