Title:
High-intensity intervals versus continuous endurance for weight loss and fitness enhancement
Authors:

Abstract:
The aim of this paper was to provide a broad review of the already established evidence detailing the efficacy of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) in weight loss, body compositions and fitness. In doing so, a clearer picture would be formed on the importance of HIIT in health, longevity and the reduction of chronic disease. A comparison was made with continuous endurance exercise (CET) which is an already established form of exercise in the regard of the stipulated outcomes. A search was conducted using specific keywords and using the databases Google, EBSCO, SPORTDiscus, MEDLINE and the University of Chester portal, which gave access to supplementary articles which were deemed important for this research. A literature review was then conducted whereby established evidence of HIIT was highlighted in the form of a review (Section 3) and rationale for the research project was given in relation to the formulation of the chosen research question (Section 4).
