Muscle metabolism and ion transport
The project aims to investigate the effects of physical activity in the form of adapted team play as a prevention / rehabilitation method for citizens with chronic diseases and the elderly in a practically applicable setup.
About the Study
The aim of the study is to elucidate the effect of regular physical activity through adapted team play, in a practically applicable setup, in municipal health centres, sports associations/clubs and activity centers on a wide spectrum of health parameters, physical function and mental health in citizens with chronic diseases and the elderly.
The study is a block randomized controlled intervention study that runs over 3, -6 and 12 months of adapted team play training or traditional prevention training.
The project will be able to contribute useful information about the effects of physical activity in the form of adapted team play as a prevention/rehabilitation method for citizens with chronic diseases and the elderly in a practically applicable setup.
Furthermore, the study will highlight 1) the short-term effects (12 weeks) and 2) long-term effects (6-12 months) of team play compared to traditional prevention training.
This knowledge will be beneficial for society and is expected to influence recommendations in the field of prevention, rehabilitation and treatment of chronic diseases for citizens and the elderly.
The project also aims to strengthen the retention of physical activity and increase understanding of the effect of team play on mental health, well-being and socialization.
The project has just started and we are working to find health and activity centers that might be interested in a collaboration. Recruitment is expected to start around the summer of 2023.

10-20-30 is a form of high-intensity interval training including repeated 10-s all-out efforts which leads to a reduced training time. The 10-20-30 training was completed following a simple principle where participants changed pace every 30, 20 and 10 s for a total duration of ~20 min.
The purpose of running project 10-20-30 was to investigate the effect of a period of intensified training and reduced training volume on performance, muscle, health and well-being, identifying potential mechanisms underlying change in performance. In addition to shed light on the extent to which this type of training can motivate people to start, and continue to exercise.
