High-intensity Interval Training to Maximize Cardiac Benefits of Exercise Training?

Ulrik Wisløff et al. Exerc Sport Sci Rev. .

Abstract

We hypothesized that high-intensity aerobic interval training results in a greater beneficial adaptation of the heart compared with that observed after low-to-moderate exercise intensity. This is supported by recent epidemiological, experimental, and clinical studies. Cellular and molecular mechanisms of myocardial adaptation to exercise training are discussed in this review.
