Psoriatic arthritis is a chronical inflammatory disease characterized by pain and reduced physical function. Patients have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and a higher body mass index.
A pilot study in patients with rheumatoid arthritis has shown positive effect on inflammation after 12 weeks of high-intensity interval training.
The primary aim of this study is to determine whether high-intensity interval training affects the disease activity in psoriatic arthritis. This intervention is believed to result in benefits in terms of inflammation, body composition and risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Experimental: interval training
4x4 high intensity interval training was performed on a stationary bicycle with a supervisor twice a week and by one self-training a week.
Behavioral: interval training
4x4 high intensity interval training
No Intervention: controls
No change in diet and training habits
- Patient global assesment (PGA) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months (right after intervention), 9 months ]PGA is measured as a change between timepoints. PGA is registered by the patient on a visual analog scale.
- Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months (right after intervention), 9 months ]The VO2 max is measured as a change between timepoints
- Total lean mass [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months (right after intervention), 9 months ]Total lean mass is measured as a change between timepoints and is measured by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA).
- Total body fat [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months (right after intervention), 9 months ]Total body fat is measured as a change between timepoints and is measured by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA).
