Abstract

This study determined the effects of 24 weeks of walking on risk factors and insulin sensitivity associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS) in men. Forty-eight (28.4±3.2 BMI) sedentary/low-active men were randomly selected into controls (n=19,52.4±8.0) or walkers (n=29, 54.9±8.0 yrs). Over a 24-week period, 156.4±26.5 min·walking·wk-1 was performed in 7.2±2.9 sessions·wk-1 for a mean of 25.1±10.3 min·session-1 at an estimated relative VO2 max of 50.6±9.1%. GLM statistical analysis using the baseline values as a covariate was employed. Bonferroni correction set significance at P
