Short-term sprint-interval training improves insulin sensitivity in young adult humans
Habitual endurance exercise has been shown repeatedly to increase insulin sensitivity, one of the principal determinants of blood glucose control. Many adults however, choose not to participate in this type of exercise, citing insufficient time as a perceived obstacle. A recent study has described improved blood glucose control post-consumption of a glucose beverage following 2-weeks of sprint-interval training (SIT), implying that SIT may increase insulin sensitivity. PURPOSE: Using the gold standard measure, the hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp technique, we investigated the hypothesis that ...
