Brief Summary

The current guidelines for non-specific CLBP, recommend a conservative approach with exercise therapy, as first line treatment. Endurance and resistance training are two examples of recommended exercise therapies. However, it appears that none is recommended as superior over the other.

Detailed Description

The lack of studies using HIIT in CLBP subjects, is the reason why it is needed to conduct an investigation about its effects.

However, firstly it is needed to assess the feasibility and safety of the HIIT protocol, to integrate it in the daily practise and future research.

In a single-center, single-blinded randomized feasiblity study, the investigators aim to prove the feasibility and safety of a 12 week HIIT programm.
