dc.description.abstractThere is strong evidence that exercise training has beneficial health effects in patients with cardiovascular disease. Most studies have focused on moderate continuous training (MCT); however, a body of evidence has begun to emerge demonstrating that highintensity interval training (HIIT) has significantly better results in terms of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of MCT versus HIIT on functional capacity and quality of life and to assess safety. Seventy-two patients with ischemic heart disease were assigned to either HITT or MCT for 8 weeks. We analyzed cardiopulmonary exercise stress test data, quality of life, and adverse events.High-intensity interval training resulted in a significantly greater increase in V · O 2 peak (4.5 ± 4.7 mL·kg − 1 ·min − 1 ) compared with MCT (2.5 ± 3.6 mL·kg − 1 ·min − 1 ) ( P < .05). The aerobic threshold (V T 1 ) increased by 21% in HIIT and 14% in MCT. Furthermore, there was a significant ( P < .05) increase in the distance covered in the 6-minute walk distance test in the HIIT group (49.6 ± 6.3 m) when compared with the MCT group (29.6 ± 12.0 m). Both training protocols improved quality of life. No adverse events were reported in either of the groups.On the basis of the results of this study, HIIT should be considered for use in cardiac rehabilitation as it resulted in a greater increase in functional capacity compared with MCT. We also observed greater improvement in quality of life without any increase in cardiovascular
