Associations between changes in physical activity and risk factors for coronary heart disease in a community-based sample of men and women : the Stanford Five-City Project.
Aerobic exercise training studies involving volunteers generally result in an improved cardiovascular risk factor profile.
Little is known, however, about associations between physical activity change and risk factor change in a more representative sample, such as a community.
This investigation evaluated correlations between a composite physical activity change score and change in cardiovascular risk factors from 1979 to 1985 in the cohort sample of the Stanford Five-City Project.
Men (n=380) and women (n=427) between the ages of 18 and 74 years were evaluated for change in self-reported physical activity and change in total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL cholesterol), systolic blood pressure, resting pulse rate, and body mass index (weight (kg)/ height (m)2).
