Quick Summary

In this meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, high-intensity interval training and continuous aerobic training had similar effects on body fat, but high intensity interval training was better for increasing VO2 max and reducing blood glucose.

What was studied?

The effect of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) compared to continuous aerobic training (CAT) on body fat percentage and abdominal visceral fat mass (primary outcomes).

The secondary outcomes were body weight, BMI, maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max; a marker of aerobic endurance), and the levels of fasting glucose, total cholesterol, and triglycerides.
