Cardiovascular risk marker variability in response to exercise in men

12 February 2020

The amount of fat in our blood increases after a meal. Large increases in blood fat over long periods of time can increase the risk of heart disease in later life. A single bout of exercise performed up to 18 h before a meal reduces blood fats in adults. It has also been shown that acute bouts of exercise can improve measures of blood pressure and sleep quality. However, we do not know whether these responses to exercise are similar on repeated occasions.
