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).
