Purpose: This research aimed to study the effects of supplemented high intensity interval training on aerobic and anaerobic capacity in amateur boxers.

Methods: Twentyfour male amateur boxers aged between 12-18 years old, from Suphanburi Sport School participated in this study. They were divided into two group ; experimental group (n = 12) and control group (n = 12). The experimental group was trained by HIIT program in addition to their nomal training, 2 days a week for 6 weeks. The control group, however underwent a nomal training program only. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) was measured by using a Bruce protocol and Anaerobic power , Anaerobic Capacity was tested by a Wingate Anaerobic Test. Data were expressed as mean and standard deviation, and were analyzed by using a Pair sample t-test and independent sample-t test. A level of significant was set at p-value < 0.05

Result: There were no differences in age, body weight, Percent fat, Resting hart rate, Maximal hart rate, Aerobic and Anaerobic capacity between experimental and control group before training. After 6 week of training, experimental group had average of Aerobic and Anaerobic capacity slightly higher than the control group which was not significant difference

Conclusion: This results indicate that adding  6 weeks of HIIT training can improve Aerobic and Anaerobic capacity in the experimental group more than the normal training in the control group but not significant difference, Probably because of the short term training and other external factors which cannot control, HIIT program tend to succeed in developing aerobic and anaerobic capacity in amatuer boxer.
