The main purpose of this study is to compare the impact of concurrent high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and whole-body electromyostimulation exercise (WB-EMS) or low-volume conventional strength training (CST) on the cardiometabolic risk profile, overall physical fitness (cardiorespiratory fitness and muscular strength), body composition, inflammatory markers and subjective health outcomes after a 12-week intervention trial in overweight individuals at increased cardiometabolic risk. Furthermore, this study aims to investigate the influence of intra-session exercise order on all outcomes.
