Training in Sedentary Overweight Adults

Body Weight-Based Interval Training in Sedentary Overweight and Obese Adults

Body-weight based interval training (IT) performed 3 times per week will lead to reductions in abdominal adiposity and reduce overall body fat percentage in overweight and obese sedentary adults more effectively than moderate intensity continuous training (MICT). Body-weight interval training will improve exercise capacity (peak VO2) in overweight/obese adults.
