Clinical Trial Summary

Overweight is a risk factor for a number of non-communicable diseases, and this risk doubles, if an individual is physically inactive. Various exercise interventional protocols in the past have been reported on treating overweight and obesity which helps to decrease the different anthropometric variables. Despite all these protocols, obese and overweight do not seem to benefit greatly by these exercise training programs, as lack of time is thought to the main reason for not engaging in healthful physical exercise. Research evidence has proven that people with a body mass index of more than 30 kg/m2 and waist circumference of more than 102 cm have 2-fold higher risk of waking fewer steps daily. Although physical exercise is thought to be very helpful in regulating the body weight, it is very important to identify the type of physical activity to effectively manage overweight and obesity. Aerobic exercise namely high intensity interval training have been reported to reduce the body mass, fat%, and waist circumference. Investigators believe that high intensity interval training would help in controlling the various anthropometric variables namely the body mass index, waist circumference, and fat% in trunk region in physically inactive overweight adults.
