BACKGROUND Age-related endothelial dysfunction and vascular stiffening are associated with increased cardiovascular (CV) risk. Many groups have encouraged goals of ≥10 000 steps/day or ≥30 min/day of moderate intensity physical activity (MPA) to reduce age-related CV risk. The impact of MPA on the vasculature of older adults remains unclear. METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND We previously reported increased moderate-intensity (3-6 metabolic equivalents (METs)) physical activity (PA) reverses aging-associated vascular endothelial dysfunction, a surrogate marker of cardiovascular risk. Whether reductions in sedentary time alone contribute to this improvement is unknown. METHODS Data from 96 adults (aged ≥50 years)(More)
