This study aimed to compare the effects of continuous aerobic training (CAT) versus weight training with high-intensity intermittent exercise (WT/HIIE) on physical performance, hormonal responses, and psychological fitness in air force men. Forty-one participants were randomly allocated to the control group (CON), CAT, and WT/HIIE. The CAT and WT/HIIE were designed to yield the same energy expenditure/session. Both groups performed 3 times/week for 12 weeks. Results showed that the CON showed no significant change in all parameters. Both CAT and WT/HIIE increased (p<0.05) muscular strength (leg), muscular power, speed, testosterone, testosterone/cortisol ratio, mental state and mental health. Only WT/HIIE decreased (p<0.05) cortisol, stress level and increased (p<0.05) muscular strength (chest), muscular endurance, aerobic capacity, insulin-like growth factor 1, and mental quality. We concluded that both CAT and WT/HIIE were effective in improving physical performance, hormonal responses, and psychological fitness in air force men, but the WT/HIIE appeared to confer greater overall improvements than the continuous aerobic training program.|
