Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare an interval versus continuous aerobic dance program on selected cardiorespiratory variables. Volunteers were randomly assigned to an interval dance group, a continuous dance group, or control group. Following a graded exercise test on the cycle ergometer, an ANCOVA and post-hoc Sheffee revealed significant improvements in V̇O2max (p < .001), V̇Emax (p < .001) and oxygen pulse (p < .001) in the interval dance group. Both experimental groups showed significant decreases in adiposity (p < .01), and increases in anaerobic threshold (p < .001). It was concluded that interval training may be a more effective substitute than traditional aerobic dance.
