This randomized control trial examines differences in glycemia and insulin sensitivity, acute and 1-month glucose fluctuations and 1-month glucose disposal pathways between two physical activity strategies: BREAK and ONE. The BREAK strategy consists of 5-minute bouts of brisk walking performed hourly for 9 hours/day, 5 days per week, and the ONE strategy consists of a single 45-minute bout of brisk walking 5 days per week. The intervention will be maintained for two more months and glucose control will be tested. Participants will be male and female adult volunteers with overweight or obesity and pre-diabetes, a population that may be seeking physical activity options to control glucose.More
- Male and female - Overweight and obese BMI of 25-40 kg/m2and weight stable over the previous 6 months. - Age, 18-45 years old. - Fasting glucose of 100-125 mg/dL or fasting HbA1c of 5.7-6.4%, or 2h OGTT blood glucose of 140-199mg/dL based on the American Diabetes Association criteria for pre-diabetes. -Less than 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) per week and more than 6 hours of sitting time per day, as self-reported by the volunteers using the IPAQ.
