Background In humans using a random cross-over strategy, individual variation in traditional cardiovascular risk factor responses to various exercise regiments has not been directly addressed in humans. Methods Body mass index, resting blood pressure, insulin, and lipid levels were all assessed in 68 healthy untrained adults who were separated by three-months washout, with improved cardiopulmonary endurance and skeletal muscle function. Between 39-59% of people who did not react to resistance subsequently responded to endurance, while 28-54% who did not respond to endurance responded to resistance. Exercise modality had an effect on the proportion of subjects who responded to training, and non-response to one mode of training did not imply non-respondance to the alternate method. Although the effect of exercise on a single risk factor can be small, the effect on overall cardiovascular risk profile can be dramatic.
