Effects of high intensity interval training versus endurance exercise on human skeletal muscle and circulating biological networks

Exercise is beneficial for the prevention, delay and treatment of metabolic disorders. However, we don’t yet completely understand the molecular networks engaged in various cell types and organs throughout the body that underlie these health benefits. In this study, we will map the human skeletal muscle and plasma responses to different modes of exercise.

Participation in this study involves attending our laboratory located in Fitzroy for body composition scanning, resting metabolic rate testing, blood and muscle sampling and supervised exercise. You’ll receive your individual test results, and reimbursement will be provided.

Benefits of participation include:

  • individual metabolic health profile provided
  • diet report
  • body composition analysis
  • fitness testing
  • participants are reimbursed.

To be eligible for this study you must be:

  • male
  • age 18 –30 years old
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) between 18.5 – 25 kg/m2. (You can calculate your BMI by this formula: BMI = weight (kg) / height (m) x height (m) or online)
  • healthy (not diagnosed with diabetes, a heart condition or major chronic illness)
  • not currently participating in a structured exercise program.

To find out more, please fill in the following information and a researcher will contact you shortly.
