Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of exercise training on markers of the lipoprotein-lipid profile and inflammatory markers in post-menopausal overweight/obese women with a moderately elevated systolic blood pressure. METHODS: A total of 267 women [mean body mass index (BMI)=32.0+/-5.7kg/m(2) and mean age=57.3+/-6.6 years] underwent a 6-month exercise intervention program. Exercise training was performed 3-4 times per week at a targeted heart rate corresponding to 50% of the maximal oxygen consumption. RESULTS: Compared to baseline values, mean change in relative VO(2) max (the primary endpoint) was of 1.18+/-2.25mL/minkg (p
