Other interventions - High-fat overfeeding

Experimental: Wingate HIT - 7 days of high-fat overfeeding (50% excess calories) in conjunction 3 supervised sessions of Wingate High-intensity Interval Training.

Experimental: Modified HIT - 7 days of high-fat overfeeding (50% excess calories) in conjunction with 3 supervised sessions of Modified High-Intensity Interval Training

Active Comparator: No Exercise Control - 7 days of high-fat overfeeding (50% excess calories) with no supervised exercise


Other interventions: Wingate HIT
3 sessions of Wingate based High-Intensity Interval Training (6-8 x 15 second "all out" sprints on a cycle ergometer interspersed by 2 minutes recovery)

Other interventions: Modified HIT
3 sessions of Modified High-Intensity Interval Training (8 x 60 second sprints at approximately 90-95% VO2 peak on a cycle ergometer interspersed by 60 seconds recovery)

Other interventions: High-fat overfeeding
7 days of high-fat overfeeding (50% excess calories)

Summary
Brief summary
Previous research has shown that indulging in 50% more calories than required for as little
as 3 days can significantly impact markers of metabolic health in lean and overweight
individuals. Here, the investigators will determine if 3 brief sessions of high-intensity
interval training can mitigate the adverse consequences of 7 days high-fat overfeeding in
sedentary, overweight males.
