- High-intensity interval exercises are known for a whole range of health benefits, but conventional wisdom says that if you do it too soon before going to bed, it may disturb your sleep.

The small study at Charles Sturt University in Australia included 11 middle-aged men whose highest levels of oxygen consumption (VO2peak) and sleep and eating habits were recorded one week before the experimental tests. Afterwards, they participated in three trials of 30-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIE) in which six one-minute high-intensity sprints ran to 100 percent of their VO2peak with a four-minute break and 50 percent of their VO2peak in-between each sprint
Each trial lasted three days each – the first was done in the morning, the second in the afternoon and the third in the evening. There were five days of recovery between each experiment.
