Strong physical fitness is the prerequisite for college students to learn cultural knowledge, but also for the future work and life to provide a strong support and guarantee. However, there are few experimental studies on the influence of plateau environment on the physical health level of college students. Plateau area mainly because of its high cold hypoxia, so as to stimulate the human body, human body function in the environment to adapt to the adaptive changes. Therefore, it is of great significance to explore the teaching means, methods and ways to improve the physical health level of college students in plateau area by investigating the physical health level of college students in plateau environment and its influencing factors. High intensity interval training (HIIT) has been proven to improve physical fitness in the general population. Because of its short time, diverse form and content, and relatively thin movements, HIIT training is loved and welcomed by most students.However, there are few studies on the impact of high-intensity interval training on the physical health level of college students in plateau environment, especially for college students in plateau environment as research objects. High intensity interval training under high altitude environment is a relatively new research perspective. By exploring whether high-intensity interval training in the plateau environment can promote the physical health of college students, this paper designs training programs to conduct experimental intervention for college students in the plateau environment, providing a new training theory reference for university public physical education courses and a training method to improve physical health for college students in the plateau environment.
