Abstract
Aim. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of two high intensity interval training (HIIT) protocol on plasma levels of adiponectin, leptin and hypertension in overweight nurses.
Background. Cardiovascular disease, as a chronic and debilitating physical condition, is one of the most common causes of death worldwide and can affect the health of individuals, especially nurses who are exposed to a variety of diseases and it is necessary to identify variables related to health in these group.
Method. This was a clinical trial in which 27 nurses (mean age 25.81±0.6 years, mean height 158.01±7.6 cm and mean weight 69.41±0.25 kg) were selected and randomly divided into three groups of high intensity interval training type 1 (8 seconds of fast running and 12 seconds of active recycling), high intensity interval training type 2 (40-meter sweep test with maximum speed), and control group. High intensity interval training type 1 was performed for four weeks, three sessions per week, each session lasted 6-9 minutes with more than 90% of maximum heart rate. High intensity interval training type 2 was performed for four weeks, three sessions per week, with more than 90% of the maximum heart rate. The control group did not participate in any training program.
Findings. The study showed that HIIT type 1 and type 2 had a statistically significant effect on reducing plasma leptin levels, systolic and diastolic blood pressure and increasing plasma adiponectin concentration in nurses. Both training methods improved health indicators (adiponectin, leptin and systolic and diastolic blood pressure), but HIIT type 1 training caused more control and regulation of these indicators compared with compared to HIIT type 2.
Conclusion. There is a significant difference between type 1 HIIT exercise, type 2 HIIT exercise and control in research variables (adiponectin, leptin and blood pressure) in nurses.
