Abstract

Background: Low cardiorespiratory fitness (V̇O₂peak) is highly associated with chronic disease and mortality from all causes. Whilst exercise training is recommended in health guidelines to improve V̇O2peak, there is considerable inter-individual variability in the V̇O₂peak response to the same dose of exercise. Understanding how genetic factors contribute to V̇O₂peak training response may improve personalisation of exercise programs. The aim of this study was to identify genetic variants that are associated with the magnitude of V̇O₂peak response following exercise training. Methods: Participant change in objectively measured V̇O₂peak from 18 different interventions was obtained from a multi-centre study (Predict-HIIT). A genome-wide association study was completed (n = 507), and a polygenic predictor score (PPS) was developed using alleles from single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) significantly associated (P
