Exercise to reduce cholesterol

A person can combat high cholesterol by exercising regularly, reducing the risk of adverse health outcomes. One research study suggest that more days per week of either aerobic or strength exercise were associated with lower LDL. A study found that exercises such as jogging, running, and biking decreased LDL by 5%. In a study of 20 overweight women, 12 weeks of combined aerobic and strength exercise reduced oxidized LDL levels.
