The purpose of this study was to see if exercise in the form of Tabata or Sprinting would lower postprandial lipemia and glycemia. Tabata was composed of body-weight exercises. Both Tabata and Sprinting consisted of 5 rounds with each round lasting 4 minutes and included movements performed for 20 seconds followed by 10sec of rest. Following the completion of each round, participants received a 60 second break. Both exercise sessions were isocaloric and lasted 25min. Thirty minutes following exercise, participants were given a 75g-oral glucose solution and a high-fat meal two hours following exercise. The postprandial assessment lasted 6 hours. Results of the study showed no significant differences in the TG or glucose concentration compared to rest. There was a significant difference between the total area under the curve for glucose when comparing Tabata to Sprinting (p=.045). In conclusion, high-intensity interval exercise has no effect on postprandial lipemia or glycemia.
