1. McCabe, Matthew D. A Novel Method of High-Intensity Low-Volume Exercise for Improving Health-Related Fitness and its Implications for Weight Management among College Students.

Degree: PhD, Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services: Health Education, 2017, University of Cincinnati

Study One Abstract: High-intensity low-volume exercise training (HILVET) has been shown to improve health-related outcomes while reducing the time required to exercise. However, the effects of HILVET while incorporating a weight-supported kinetic chain resistance training (WSKCRT) modality are unknown. The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the impact of a novel high-intensity low-volume WSKCRT program on health-related fitness through measurements of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 max), muscular strength, muscular endurance, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), body fat percentage (BF%), and lower body flexibility. Six recreationally active undergraduate college students completed high-intensity low-volume WSKCRT three days per week for six weeks. Participants performed 4-9 intervals of WSKCRT, for 30 seconds at 90% of heart rate reserve (HRR) followed by 60 seconds of treadmill exercise at 40% of HRR. Significant improvements in BF% (23.1 ± 8.7 to 20.3 ± 7.6%; p = 0.004) and muscular strength (504.9 ± 223.01 to 596.2 ± 206.1 kg; p = 0.0001) were observed from baseline. Changes in VO2 max, muscular endurance score, and WC failed to reach statistical significance. There were no changes in BMI or lower body flexibility. These results indicate the potential efficacy of HILVET, using WSKCRT, for college students seeking to improve their health. Future research is warranted to determine if HILVET, utilizing a novel WSKCRT modality, is comparable to nationally recommended exercise guidelines. Study Two Abstract: High-intensity low-volume exercise training (HILVET) has been shown to be a time efficient method for improving measures associated with being overweight or obesity. However, the impact of HILVET using a novel standing weight-supported kinetic chain resistance training (WSKCRT) modality on these measures is unknown. The purpose of this pilot study was to examine the impact of HILVET utilizing a novel WSKCRT modality on factors related to long-term weight management through measurements of resting metabolic rate (RMR), fat-free body mass, thigh muscle volume, thigh muscle cross-sectional area, fat mass, body fat percentage (BF%), and central adiposity. Six recreationally active undergraduate college students completed high-intensity low-volume WSKCRT on the FinisherTM three days per week for six weeks. Participants performed 4-9 intervals of upper body exercise, on the FinisherTM, for 30 seconds at 90% of heart rate reserve (HRR) followed by 60 seconds of treadmill exercise at 40% of HRR. Significant improvements were observed for thigh muscle cross-sectional area (169.2 ± 37.1 to 185.4 ± 35.4 cm2; p = 0.003) and BF% (23.1 ± 8.7 to 20.3 ± 7.6%; p = 0.004). Changes in RMR, fat-mass, fat-free mass, and central adiposity failed to reach statistical significance. There were no changes in thigh muscle volume. These results indicate the potential efficacy of HILVET, using the FinisherTM, among college students, as a good tool for managing body weight. Future research is needed to determine if… Advisors/Committee Members: Wilson, Bradley (Committee Chair).
