Visting Scholar Prof. Jeff Coombes presents Are there Non-Responders to Exercise Training?

Event Details

This presentation will discuss various approaches and considerations needed to assess exercise training response variability and the importance of context. Data from the PREDICT-HIIT study, a multi-centre trial comparing VO2 peak trainability between high-volume High Intensity Interval Training, low-volume HIIT/Sprint Interval Training and Moderate Intensity Continuous Training) will be presented.
