NEW ORLEANS — In this video exclusive, Sheri R. Colberg-Ochs, PhD, FACSM, professor emeritus of exercise science from Old Dominion University, discusses her presentation on high-intensity interval training — workouts that alternate between bursts of intense activity and less-strenuous moves — in people with diabetes.

Colberg-Ochs explained that many questions surround these exercise programs, including the definition, parameters, and risks and benefits of high-intensity training. A primary concern is the lack of protocols that can work for everyone.
