Description

This study will investigate the effects of 6 weeks of high intensity interval training (HIIT) with protein supplementation on measures of muscle growth, muscle structure, blood glucose regulation, body composition, strength and aerobic fitness. We will compare these physiological and metabolic changes with endurance (END) and resistance exercise (REX) programs also coupled with protein supplementation of the same duration.

Following a training program, no study to date has compared the loss of adaptations between HIIT, REX and END after a short-term de-training period (i.e. 2 weeks). Therefore, we will take the same measures prior to and immediately after the 6-week training program and again after a 2-week de-training period.
