In men, significant associations between recovery heart rate and VAT and VAT/SAT ratio but not SAT were also seen when analyzed separately in men: VAT (r= 0.340; P= 0.001), SAT (r= 0.102; P= 0.325), and VAT/SAT ratio (r= 0.288;P= 0.005), respectively (Table 1).

In women, the results were not significant, but only with similar trend found in the relationships: VAT (r= 0.162;P= 0.066), SAT (r= 0.022;P= 0.804), and VAT/SAT ratio (r= 0.170;P= 0.050), respectively (Table 2).
