    Abstract

    Purpose: Recent meta-analyses indicate that sprint interval training (SIT) improves cardiorespiratory fitness (V[Combining Dot Above]O2max), but the effects of various training parameters on the magnitude of the improvement remain unknown. The present meta-analysis examined the modifying effect of the number of sprint repetitions in a SIT session on improvements in V[Combining Dot Above]O2max.Methods: The databases PubMed and Web of Science were searched for original studies that have examined pre- and post-training V[Combining Dot Above]O2max in adults following >=2 weeks of training consisting of repeated (>=2) Wingate-type cycle sprints, published up to 1 May 2016. Articles were excluded if they were not in English, involved patients, athletes, or participants with a mean baseline V[Combining Dot Above]O2max of >55 mL[middle dot]kg-1[middle dot]min-1 or a mean age
