If I recall correctly, in order for exercise to be considered “aerobic”, it needs to raise your heart beat to a certain level.

Is that the only factor, or are there others?

The reason I ask is because I want/need to modify my morning exercise routine so I can stop taking Niacin (Nicotinic acid) and still increase my HDL.

Hello BlackBelt,

Back in 1968, Dr. Ken Cooper coined the term "Aerobic Exercise". Originally, Cooper did not even mention heart rate. His original premise was based solely of 'Oxygen Consumption' alone.

The term cardio exercise was first used by Dr. Laurence E. Morehouse.

Morehouse saw from the very beginning the flaws in Dr Coopers oxygen consumption hypothesis and was the very first to recommend pulse-rated aerobic exercise.

John,

Thank you for the clarification and reminder. I think I tend to mently combine those two factors (oxygen intake and heart rate) because, at least in my mind, they often go together. If you're exercising in a way that raises your heart rate, you're likely taking in more oxygen.

But, now that we've acknowledged the difference, which do you think is more important for raising HDL?

The information at http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-c...-20046388?pg=2 only refers to aerobic (oxygen intake).

I really am interested in your take.

Rob
