The effects of low-volume high intensity interval training and circuit training on maximal oxygen uptake (2019)
Journal Article
Birkett, S., Nichols, S., Sawrey, R., Gleadall-Siddall, D., McGregor, G., & Ingle, L. (in press). The effects of low-volume high intensity interval training and circuit training on maximal oxygen uptake. Sport Sciences for Health,

Purpose: High intensity interval training (HIIT) and circuit training (CT) are popular methods of exercise, eliciting improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF). However direct comparisons of these two training methods are limited. We investigat... Read More

Estimated peak functional capacity: an accurate method for assessing change in peak oxygen consumption after cardiac rehabilitation? (2017)
Journal Article
Nichols, S., Gleadall-Siddall, D. O., Antony, R., Clark, A. L., Cleland, J. G. F., Carroll, S., & Ingle, L. (2018). Estimated peak functional capacity: an accurate method for assessing change in peak oxygen consumption after cardiac rehabilitation?. Clinical physiology and functional imaging, 38(4), (681-688). doi:10.1111/cpf.12468. ISSN 1475-0961

Summary Objective Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is the ‘gold standard’ method of determining VO2peak. When CPET is unavailable, VO2peak may be estimated from treadmill or cycle ergometer workloads and expressed as estimated metabolic equiva... Read More

Validity and reliability of the Apple Watch for measuring heart rate during exercise (2017)
Journal Article
Khushhal, A., Nichols, S., Evans, W., Gleadall-Siddall, D., Page, R., O'Doherty, A. F., …Abt, G. (2017). Validity and reliability of the Apple Watch for measuring heart rate during exercise. SMIO / Sports Medicine International Open, 1(6), (E206-E211). doi:10.1055/s-0043-120195. ISSN 2367-1890

We examined the validity and reliability of the Apple Watch heart rate sensor during and in recovery from exercise. Twenty-one males completed treadmill exercise while wearing two Apple Watches (left and right wrists) and a Polar S810i monitor (crite... Read More

Effectiveness of short-term heat acclimation on intermittent exercise in thermoneutral and hot environments (2015)
Journal Article
Nation, F., Birkett, M., Gleadall-Siddall, D., Burke, R., Towlson, C., Bray, J., …Garrett, A. (2015). Effectiveness of short-term heat acclimation on intermittent exercise in thermoneutral and hot environments. Extreme Physiology and Medicine, 4(1), A120. doi:10.1186/2046-7648-4-S1-A120

It is well-established that repetition of heat stress exposure has been shown to facilitate adaptations to the heat but these protocols have tended to be of a fixed work intensity, continuous exercise, long-term in duration (>7 days) and use hydratio... Read More

Cardiometabolic health benefits of a six-week high-intensity interval training intervention : a case study (2014)
Journal Article
Siddall-Gleadall, D., Gritt, J., Burke, R., O'Carroll, G., Bray, J., Ingle, L., & Garrett, A. (2014). Cardiometabolic health benefits of a six-week high-intensity interval training intervention : a case study. Journal of sports sciences, 32(Supplement 2), s28-s32. doi:10.1080/02640414.2014.968381

Regular physical activity is recommended for patients diagnosed with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and Type 2 Diabetes. However, "lack of time" is a common cited barrier in achieving the recommended weekly physical activity guidelines. High-intens... Read More

Effectiveness of a six-week high-intensity interval training programme on cardiometabolic markers in sedentary males (2014)
Conference Proceeding
Gleadall-Siddall, D., Burke, R., Gritt, J., O'Carroll, G., Bray, J., Ingle, L., & Garrett, A. (2014). Effectiveness of a six-week high-intensity interval training programme on cardiometabolic markers in sedentary males. doi:10.1080/02640414.2014.968390

High-intensity interval training (HIT) has been proposed as an effective, time efficient strategy to elicit similar cardiometabolic health benefits as traditional moderate-intensity endurance training. This is an important consideration as "lack of t... Read More
