Lecturer in Human Physiology, Dr Fergus Guppy recently presented work at the European College of Sports Science Annual Congress in Malmo recently.
Dr Guppy said of his work “This project suggests that HIIT reduces fat mass in healthy young males, with no change seen in lean mass. HIIT is a very popular form of exercise that involves short but very intense bouts of exercise. This study suggests that HIIT is beneficial to body composition and other studies have shown that it is beneficial for glucose tolerance. These two combined mean that this form of exercise may, at some point, be useful in managing obesity and diabetes.”
