8 Seconds...reference anyone?

OK, over on that other rowing site we all frequent they linked to a newspaper article on 8-second intervals being the key to weight loss.

I'd like to be able to comment on this study, but the article has no reference to a published scientific paper. I have not been able to find one. If anyone out there has found a reference, would you please leave it in the comments section for all of us? If you have read the article - what do you think?

One of the researchers has a web site. He notes ongoing research in this field but does not list it amongst his publications. I have a feeling that the newspaper is taking liberties with his work and exaggerating things a bit...legitimate scientific work is taking on an air of "too good to be true" in the press I think.
