Optimizing Interval Training Protocols Using Data Mining Decision Trees
Source: University of California
Interval training consists of interleaving high intensity exercises with rest periods. This training method is a well known exercise protocol which helps strengthen and improve one's cardiovascular fitness. However, there is no known method for formulating and tailoring an optimized interval training protocol for a specific individual which maximizes the amount of work done while limiting fatigue. But by using data mining schemes with various attributes, conditions, and data gathered from an individual's exercise session, it is able to efficiently formulate an optimized interval training method for an individual.
