Men Benefit More From Interval Training On Stationary Bikes

June 2, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Interval training – short bouts of intense exercise in tandem with moderate exercise – benefits men more than women, according to a new U.S. study. Though men and women both experience increases in aerobic capacity through interval training, men create more new proteins than women do. The study involved young, healthy, active men and women who completed sprint interval training on a stationary bike three times a week, for three weeks. Aerobic capacity was measured before and after the study, and the number of new proteins created was measured, especially those created in muscle. The researchers said the study does not extend to other types of exercise, such as running, jogging and cycling, where women may benefit equally or more.
