It has been speculated about the relationship of obesity and cognitive function decline. In this context, the visceral adipose tissue (VAT) is a key component of metabolic dysregulation, and when combined with lower concentrations of brain-derived neurotrophic factors (BDNF), promoting cognitive decline. BDNF is involved in different cell functions, however it highlights its effect on the neuroregeneration process essential for maintenance of cognitive functions. Their concentrations are reduced in obese individuals and recent studies have shown that physical exercise can promote increased BDNF concentrations. However, the knowledge about the effects of high intensity and intermittent aerobic training (HIIT) is incipient on cognitive function of young obese adults concomitant anthropometric and imunometabolic changes. Therefore, obese adult who will be recruited and randomized into two groups: HIIT (10x1 minute vVO2pico 100% for 1 minute passive rest) and moderate continuous aerobic training (65% vVO2 with energy expenditure equivalent to HIIT). Imunometabolic parameters (cytokines anti and pro-inflammatory, lipid profile, blood glucose and insulin) and morphological (X-ray absorptiometry dual energy and octopolar bioelectrical impedance analysis), and cognitive function (memory, attention and executive function) that will be analyzed and compared to the end of the 6 weeks of training. It is expected that improvements in biochemical and morphological parameters reflect cognitive function.
