The purpose of this study was to compare 8 weeks of training utilizing a 1 minute pulse of intense effort within 30 minutes of moderate cycle exercise (P) to 30 minutes of steady state moderate cycle exercise (C). Outcome measurements included body mass (BM), percent body fat (%BF), maximal oxygen uptake (V˙O 2max), heart rate (HR), rating of perceived exertion (RPE), resting blood lactate (BLrest), and peak blood lactate (BLpeak). Participants had %BF, height and BM recorded and then completed a graded cycle ergometer pretest where BLrest, V˙O2max, HR, RPE, and BLpeak were measured. Participants completed 8 weeks of exercise training in either group C or P. Posttesting revealed P significantly increased the time to reach exhaustion and a significant reduction in the level of blood lactate at 150W was seen in C.
