Breaking Up Sedentary Time to Improve Glucose Control in a Population at Risk for Developing Type 2 Diabetes

This randomized control trial examines differences in glycemia and insulin sensitivity, acute and 1-month glucose fluctuations and 1-month glucose disposal pathways between two physical activity strategies: BREAK and ONE. The BREAK strategy consists of 5-minute bouts of brisk walking performed hourly for 9 hours/day, 5 days per week, and the ONE strategy consists of a single 45-minute bout of brisk walking 5 days per week. The intervention will be maintained for two more months and glucose control will be tested. Participants will be male and female adult volunteers with overweight or obesity and pre-diabetes, a population that may be seeking physical activity options to control glucose.
