High intensity interval training: does it work?

It’s January, many people are frantically counting their calories and dusting off their gym kit in order to burn off the extra Christmas weight. Websites, magazines and papers have been littered with articles about the best ways to exercise and follow a healthy diet. One type of exercise training that is back in the limelight is high-intensity interval training.

But is it hype? For this journal club we will be looking at the following paper:

The Effect of One Bout High Intensity Interval Training On Liver Enzymes Level in Elite Soccer Players 

Read through the paper and add your thoughts in the comments function below or tweet them to @ssjournalclub. What can we take from the paper? You will find this article helpful in the journal Nature entitled ‘How to critically appraise a paper.’ Join in the discussion and I will summarise my thoughts by the 15th January.
