Biography

Summary

Dr Angelo Sabag is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist specialising in cardiometabolic health and physical performance. Angelo's primary research area focuses on the efficacy of novel exercise therapies, such as low-volume high intensity interval training, for the management of cardiometabolic health. Angelo is also interested in optimising sequencing strategies for concurrent resistance training and high intensity interval training.
