Behavioral - High-intensity interval training (HIIT)

Supervised HIIT sessions (2x/week) will comprise cycling 10 x 60 secs at 85-95% maximum heart rate (HRmax) interspersed by 60 secs of low-intensity recovery. Unsupervised HIIT sessions (1x/week) will involve 10 x 60 secs of walking or alternative (intensity of 7-9 on the 0-10 RPE) interspersed by 60 secs of walking or cycling at low intensity recovery (RPE 3-5).

Behavioral - High-Intensity resistance training (HIRT)

Supervised HIRT sessions (2x/week) will comprise 2-3 sets of 6-8 repetitions progressively achieving 90% of 1RM. Unsupervised HIRT sessions (1x/week) will involve 2-3 sets of 15-20 repetitions using a resistance exercise band when necessary.
