abstract

  • We examined mixed-muscle and fiber type-specific responses to a single session and to 12 wk of moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT) and sprint interval training (SIT) in humans. Both interventions elicited generally similar responses, although the training-induced increases in type I fiber-specific markers of mitochondrial content were greater in MICT than in SIT. These findings advance our understanding of the potential role of fiber type-specific changes in determining the human skeletal muscle response to intermittent and continuous exercise.
