Table 3 Thresholds for response

From: Genome wide association study of response to interval and continuous exercise training: the Predict-HIIT study

Category Criteria High-volume HIIT (mL/kg/min) MICT (mL/kg/min) Low-volume HIIT/SIT (mL/kg/min)
Likely responder  > 1 TEM above the + MCID  > 5.3  > 5.0  > 5.2
Likely non-responder  > 1 TEM below + MCID to < 1 TEM below the –MCID − 5.3 to 1.7 − 5.0 to 2.0 − 5.2 to 1.8
Uncertain responders  < 1 TEM above to < 1 TEM below + MCID 1.7 to 5.3 2.0 to 5.0 1.8 to 5.2
  1. Technical error of measurement (TEM) = multiplying mean V̇O2peak value by a previously published coefficient of variation for V̇O2peak of 5.6%,
  2. Minimal Clinically Important Difference (MCID) = 3.5 mL/kg/min
