Abstract
Aerobic power and levels of serum cholesterol, triglycerides and uric acid were measured on a sample of 2501 male Canadian Forces (CF) personnel. Blood pressure, body composition assessed by skin-fold thickness, and smoking incidence were also measured. The sample was divided into three age groups and four categories of aerobic power with all variables reported for each of the twelve sub-groups. The incidence of elevated values of any parameter for each group was calculated. It is concluded that the statistically significant relationship between increased aerobic power and a lowering of known cardiovascular risk factor levels provides an additional reason to encourage the promotion of physical fitness among CF personnel.
