Introduction: Moderate-intensity aerobic exercise has been shown to attenuate the rise in triglycerides in during the postprandial period, however the effects of acute bouts of high-intensity exercise on postprandial lipemia and glycemia have not been explored. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of acute high-intensity interval training on postprandial lipemia and postprandial glycemia.
Methods: Ten healthy males participated in a randomized crossover design consisting of one high-intensity exercise session and one sedentary control session, followed by consumption of a mixed meal. Blood triglyceride and glucose concentrations were monitored following the consumption of the meal.
Results: High-intensity interval exercise produced a lowering effect (p
Conclusion: Postprandial glycemia, but not lipemia, was effected by acute high-intensity interval exercise. Future studies should explore any prolonged effects of high-intensity exercise on postprandial lipemia and glycemia.
