Introduction: Considering the effect of high intensity interval training sessions using bodyweight (HIIT-C) on mood and affective responses, the literature is still inconsistent. Objective: The aim of the study was to assess the effects of a HIIT-C session on the affective response and mood perception of physically independent and healthy individuals. Methods: The sample consisted of 17 volunteers of both sexes with a mean age of 32 ± 6.14 years. The exercise session was performed at high intensity monitored by the subjective perception of effort, organized in warm-up (5 min) followed by 20 sets of 30 seconds of exercise and 30 seconds of passive recovery between sets. The exercises used were jumping jack, burpee, mountain climber and jump squat. Results: The following parameters were analyzed before and after the training session: heart rate (HR), rating of perceived exertion (PE), mood state (EH) and affective response (AR). An increase in absolute HR was identified (Before: 81.47 ± 8.72, After: 151.90 ± 27.59; p= <0.0001), relative HR (82 ± 15%), perceived exertion (8 .54 ± 0.70) and the total number of movements (503 ± 78). Decreased pleasure perception was identified after the exercise session (Before: 3.47 ± 1.62, After: 0.35 ± 4.10; p= <0.0016). Considering the mood state, an alteration (p<0.05) was found only in the parameters of anger, vigor, fatigue and mood disorder. Conclusion: A HIIT-C session promoted an increase in HR with concomitant change in affective response and perception of mood in physically independent individuals.
