Determining the effect of concurrent resistance and high-intensity interval (HIIT) exercise training on cardiometabloic health in overweight and obesity.

Thesis Outline.

My research concerns the effect of concurrent HIIT and resistance training, in comparison to either exercise type alone, for a range of cardiometabolic health measures related to overweight and obesity, such as aerobic fitness and body composition. 


I gained a BSc. (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science and an MSc. in Sport and Exercise Physiology from Leeds Beckett University after which I started my PhD at the University of Sunderland in 2019.

Research Activities.

My research activities include a systematic review and meta-analysis and three primary exercise studies: 1) a reliability study on HIIT protocols 2) an acute study on separate HIIT, resistance and concurrent exercise protocols 3) a long-term training study in overweight and obesity. As well as the collection of many measures of clinical exercise physiology.
