Abstract
Aerobic fitness and the incidence of risk factors related to cardiovascular disease (CVD) were compared for 2501 Canadian servicemen 18-50 years of age. Aerobic power (VO2 max) was predicted from heart rate measured during submaximal bicycle exercise. The risk factors - serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides, blood pressure and body fat (sum of three skinfolds) - were measured; the incidence of cigarette smoking was obtained from a questionnaire. The total population tested was divided into three age groups which were subdivided into four fitness categories.
