Plasma chemerin in young untrained men: association with cardio-metabolic traits and physical performance, and response to intensive interval training.

OBJECTIVES: Chemerin is an adipose tissue-derived adipokine thought to decrease insulin sensitivity and increase cardiometabolic risk. This study aimed to assess the association of chemerin with cardiometabolic risk and physical performance and examine its response to high-intensity interval training (HIIT).
