Abstract: In recent years there has been a surge in interest concerning high intensity intermittent exercise training (HIT) due to its ability to confer rapid notable cardio-metabolic health benefits. Specifically, HIT has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and glycaemic control as well as other cardiovascular health factors after just 2 weeks of training (typically 6 training sessions). This thesis investigated the potential therapeutic role of HIT training within obese cohorts specifically addressing metabolic health, inclusive of inflammatory profiles and glycaemic control.
