Abstract : The high density lipoprotein (HDL) fraction of total serum cholesterol has been identified as a cardiovascular disease risk-reducing factor. This technical study reports the correlation between aerobic activity level and measured HDL level among the subject population of mid-career US military officers. It concludes that a strong positive correlation exists between aerobic activity and HDL at low to moderate levels of exercise activity. This correlation becomes insignificant at high to very high levels of exercise activity. It also concludes that over a 12-week period, changes in aerobic activity level correlate positively with changes in HDL level.
