Cardiometabolic disorder (CMD) has progressively become a global public health concern because of its association with increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes. Recent studies suggest that light-intensity training (LIT) and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can induce physiological adaptations that may reduce CMD risk whilst sedentary behaviour has been reported to increase CMD risk. However, the exact cardiometabolic consequences of sedentary behaviour, LIT and HIIT, and the underlying mechanisms behind the distinct health outcomes they produce remains to be elucidated.
