Abstract

ABSTRACT: METABOLIC SYNDROME IS A CLUSTER OF RISK FACTORS SPECIFIC TO CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. VARIOUS EXERCISE METHODS HAVE BEEN PRESCRIBED TO TREAT THESE RISK FACTORS. HOWEVER, RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT EXERCISE INTENSITY MAY PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN EFFECTIVE REVERSAL OF METABOLIC SYNDROME. THEREFORE, LOW-VOLUME HIGH-INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING OFFERS AN ATTRACTIVE EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION.
