Participants required for a study on sprint training

August 21, 2012

The Human Performance Clinical/Research Laboratory in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at the CSU is seeking volunteers to participate in studies investigating three weeks of sprint-interval training on physiological function. The exercise will involve running, cycling or jumping.

Volunteers should:

  • be aged 18-40 years
  • be non-smokers
  • be not pregnant
  • currently exercise less than 3 x per week

Benefits for study volunteers may include the following:

  • a graded exercise stress test for cardiovascular health assessment, 
  • measurements of aerobic fitness capacity (VO2max), and
  • body composition (including whole-body bone mineral density and % body fat).

Participants will receive financial compensation for their time spent in the laboratory.

Risks, warnings

Potential risks for study volunteers:

  • You will be asked to perform a very, very difficult exercise.
  • Participants should not currently be taking prescription medications or using any illicit drugs, such as cocaine or heroin.

This study had been approved by the CSU Instituitional Review Board (10-2065H).
