Differences in effects of aerobic exercise training on blood lipids in men and women

Academic Article


  • There is considerable evidence that exercise is beneficial in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.1-5 Most studies have compared athletes with nonathletes, or have examined a middle-aged population with already elevated blood lipids. It is not clear whether moderate exercise in a healthy but sedentary adult population can have beneficial effects on blood lipids. Some data support this contention,3,4 but other investigators question whether exercise, independent of other factors such as diet, smoking habits and adiposity, can alter the blood lipid profile.5. © 1989.
