  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to collect data to help researchers identify factors, such as certain proteins or genetic codes, that are secreted from muscle that are associated with the beneficial effects of exercise.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure change in mitochondrial capacity [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day -6), Day 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The difference will be measured in obese, lean and athletic participants.

    The Phosphocreatine (PCr) recovery time constant and the PCr level in oxygenated muscle at rest will be used to calculate maximum mitochondrial capacity.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure change of expression of proteins [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day -6), Day 0, Day 5, Day 12, Day 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The difference will be measured in obese, lean and athletic participants.

    This will be taken from muscle biopsy and/or blood plasma samples obtained at baseline, before and after exercise.


  • Measure change in mRNA/miRNA levels [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day -6), Day 0, Day 5, Day 12, Day 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The difference will be measured in obese, lean and athletic participants.

    This will be taken from muscle biopsy and/or blood plasma samples obtained at baseline, before and after exercise.



Estimated Enrollment: 56
Study Start Date: July 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Group 1 - Regular exercise
Alternate interval training and aerobic training and exercise
Behavioral: Exercise
A 5-minute warm-up and a 5-minute cool-down prior to and following each exercise session, respectively. There will be alternating days of interval training and aerobic training. The interval training will be performed on an upright stationary bike, while the aerobic training will be performed on a treadmill. The interval training will consist of five-minute bouts of higher intensity alternated with 4 minutes of lower intensity for a total duration of 45 minutes. Intensity will increase each week. The aerobic training component will be fixed at a moderate intensity, but will increase in duration each week from 45 minutes to 75 minutes to 90 minutes during the third and final week.
No Intervention: Group 2 - Athlete exercise
Athletes are not given any intervention
No Intervention: Group 3 - Obese No Exercise
The Obese group will not receive intervention

Detailed Description:

Study Objectives:

  1. To identify specific changes in messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA)/micro ribonucleic acid (miRNA) expression in muscle associated with higher or lower relative measures of mitochondrial capacity and fat oxidation.
  2. To identify secreted factors/miRNAs that specifically relate to the metabolic response of muscle and that are present after a single initial bout of exercise.
  3. To collect the appropriate clinical samples (muscle and adipose tissue, plasma/serum) to enable validation of myokines associated with changes in oxygen consumption/mitochondrial content via in vivo and in vitro discovery efforts.
