From: High-intensity exercise to promote accelerated improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness (HI-PACE): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Screening visit and informed consent
- Informational session about study requirements
- Obtain informed consent
- Verify inclusion criteria (i.e., BMI and blood pressure)
- Physical exam/review of medications
- Non-exercise physical activity via activPAL
- Exercise calendar and Barriers screening forms
- Complete metabolic panel, lipids, insulin, C-reactive protein, and blood chemistries
Baseline
- PWV, muscle biopsy, IVGTT, and NIRS
- SF-36 and FFQ
- Body weight, blood pressure, anthropometry, DEXA, and maximal exercise test
Randomization
- CON, MOD-INT, or HIGH-INT group
Mid-intervention (12 weeks)
- Waist circumference
- Body weight
- Maximal exercise test
Follow-up (24 weeks)
- Non-exercise physical activity via activPAL
- PWV, muscle biopsy, IVGTT, and NIRS
- SF-36 and FFQ
- Complete metabolic panel, lipids, insulin, C-reactive protein, and blood chemistries
- Body weight, blood pressure, anthropometry, DEXA, and maximal exercise test
