The accumulative weekly time spent engaged in physical activity as recommended in the federal guidelines for aerobic exercise. Women were stratified to represent 3 levels of aerobic exercise duration: 1) None/Low Exercise , accumulating < 60 min/week of exercise; 2) Intermediate , accumulating some exercise but not meeting recommendations (i.e., accumulating 60–149 min/week of exercise) and, 3) Meeting or Exceeding Exercise Recommendations by accumulating ≥ min/week of sustained moderate-vigorous physical activity. Values are expressed as mean with SEM bars. * p<0.001 vs. None/Low Exercise , † p<0.001 vs. Intermediate.
