BACKGROUND Physical activity recommendations promote the accumulation of aerobic activity in bouts of >or=10 min. It is important to determine whether shorter bouts of activity can influence health. OBJECTIVE We compared the effects of accumulating ten 3-min bouts of brisk walking with those of one 30-min bout of brisk walking on postprandial plasma triacylglycerol concentrations and resting blood pressure. DESIGN Fifteen healthy young men completed three 2-d trials >or=1 wk apart in a… CONTINUE READING
