Brief Summary:

The main purpose of our study is to examine the physiological adaptations in oxygen transport chain for high-intensity exercise and moderate exercise in overweight and obese humans. The main goals are:

  1. To investigate the most effective short-and long-interval training in terms of VO2max, pulmonary diffusion, cardiac output, endothelial function and mitochondrial function.
  2. How these physiological adaptations affect the aerobic endurance and performance, and how this training can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases related to overweight and obesity.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Long distanse moderate training
40 minutes moderate treadmill running
Behavioral: Long distanse moderate training
Moderate exercise

Experimental: Long interval training
4x4min interval treadmill running
Behavioral: Long interval training
High-intensity exercise, long duration

Experimental: Short interval training
10x1min interval treadmill running
Behavioral: Short interval training
High intensity exercise, short duration




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximal oxygen uptake [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Change in maximal oxygen uptake will be measured after six weeks of various exercise training and related to changes in blood volume, cardiac function, endothelial function and mitochondrial function.
