Interval training (e.g. high intensity interval training; HIIT) is a powerful approach to improve blood glucose control and decrease cardiovascular disease risk in people with type 2 diabetes. This presentation will detail different approaches to using interval training including low- and high volume aerobic HIIT and combined aerobic and resistance HIIT. Evidence on the benefits of different interval training protocols will be compared to those using a moderate intensity continuous training approach. Current safety data will be presented with guidelines to decrease the risks of higher intensity exercise provided. Practical approaches to prescribe the correct intensity will be covered including the use of heart rate monitors and smartphone apps with practical examples presented in case studies.  The importance of blood glucose monitoring will be discussed with reference to recently released guidelines. The feasibility of translating the evidence from laboratory-based interval training studies into practice will be a focus of the presentation.
