  1. Data are mean ± SD. VLDL, very low-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; RLP, remnant lipoprotein; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; Significantly different from Pre-Season value (p ≤ 0.05). Significantly different from Post-Competition (p ≤ 0.05). ¤Significantly different from Post-Competition value (p ≤ 0.10).
