Brief Summary:
This study will assess the effectiveness of a high-intensity intermittent games intervention (HIIG) on cardiorespiratory fitness and corporal composition. Fifty-four children, aged 9-12 years, will be randomised into an HIIG or moderate-intensity games (MIG) group. Before and after the intervention, participants complete cardiorespiratory fitness and corporal composition test. The hypothesis states that there is an improvement in the cardiorespiratory fitness and in the body composition implementing high-intensity intermittent games.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 54 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

Experimental design is applied where HIIG is compared with MIG. The participants of the study will be divided into two groups; HIIG and MIG. Both of them will have two sessions per week during 12 weeks of intervention.

Follow up: children are contacted 3 months after finishing the intervention.

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Effect of High-intensity Intermittent Games on Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Body Composition in Children
Actual Study Start Date : August 15, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 30, 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 30, 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: High-intensity intermittent games HIIG
High-intensity intermittent games (HIIG): complete a supervised 12-weeks. Twice per week child-specific games program, intensity HRmax 75% ≤ - RPE 6-8.
Behavioral: High-intensity intermittent games
The intervention will last for 12-weeks, each group included participation in twice-week 40 minutes exercise sessions. In HIIG children took part in 5 games per session; 2 velocity games and 3 small-sided games (such 3 vs 3 and 4 vs 4). This session included 4 minutes games and 2 minutes recovery. In MIG children took part in 5 games per session. This session included 4 minutes games and 3 minutes recovery.

Active Comparator: Moderate-intensity games (MIG)
Moderate intensity games (MIG): complete a supervised 12-weeks. Twice per week child-specific games program, intensity HRmax 60-74% ≤ - RPE 4-5.
Behavioral: Moderate intensity games
The intervention will last for 12-weeks, each group included participation in twice-week 40 minutes exercise sessions. In MIG children took part in 5 games per session. This session included 4 minutes games and 3 minutes recovery.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in cardiorespiratory fitness; 20 meters shuttle run test [ Time Frame: Pre - post intervention and follow up. Time which each participant is assessed; 40 minutes ]
    Maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max) metric: ml·kg−1·min−1
