Emerging evidence regarding the separate effects of exercise intensity and amount (caloric expenditure) on adiposity and related cardiometabolic risk factors will be considered. Major gaps in knowledge will be identified and the quality of evidence upon which exercise intensity has independent effects will be scrutinized. Finally, the inter-individual response for selected cardiometabolic risk factors in response to standardized exercise will be considered.
By the end of this lecture, attendees will:
Understand the separate associations between exercise amount and intensity on selected health risk factors
Understand the heterogeneity in response to standardized exercise for selected cardiometabolic risk factors
This talk is open to everyone. Wine and cheese will be served afterwards.
