Table 6 Regression coefficients with their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) from the linear regression models predicting lipids by the amount of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA; < 6.8% used as the reference group)

From: Higher number of steps and breaks during sedentary behaviour are associated with better lipid profiles
