  1. Each donor executed the two exercise protocols in crossover fashion. At the first visit (week 1), one group (n = 6, group 1) performed a single bout of continuous exercise (CONT) at 50% Pmax for 30 min, while the other group (n = 6, group 2) performed a single bout of high-intensity interval training (20 min of 30-s 100% Pmax intervals each followed by a 30-s pause 5 min before and after HIT exercises at 50% Pmax, more precisely High Intensity High Volume Training, HIHVT). At the second visit (week 3), each group switched over to the other exercise protocol. In other words, group 1 did continuous exercise during the first visit now and did HIT exercise on the second (CONT/HIT), and group 2 vice versa (HIT/CONT)
