Type A, a term coined by Drs. Meyer Friedman and Ray H. Rosenman, refers to a pattern of anxious and aggressive behavior that has been shown to have a significant correlation with the development of heart disease. At the end of the day, Colonel Lieving sat down with an officer and a computer printout of his results and talked about what the items of information meant. Having run as much as 10 miles nearly every day for about a decade, he knew he was in good shape.
He could walk on an elevated treadmill for an impressive 17 minutes. But some of the other results were less heartening.

His cholesterol level was and his percentage of body fat was His various strength figures were similarly unimpressive. Most disturbing of all, he was told that, according to the Framingham Risk Index, which predicts the probability of suffering from heart disease based on cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, stress and exercise levels, he ran a more than one in nine chance - The staff at the testing center outlined a program for Colonel Lieving. He would run only three days a week, for a maximum of five miles; this was a significant drop from his previous regimen, but, according to current conditioning wisdom, it would provide the maximum aerobic benefits with the minimum wear and tear on the body.
Two days a week, he would lift weights. And he would make significant changes in his diet. He also discovered that he was a mild Type A. Three-quarters of the War College students are Type A's, a figure similar to that of the male population at large.
He further agreed to participate in a year-long Type A reduction program. For his own conditioning, he alternates days of running, 4 to 12 miles, with swimming and weight lifting. He has twice been extended past the Army's retirement age of 52 for colonels. This is not surprising, given his accomplishments among the War College students.

During one year in which figures were taken for participating officers - none of whom were terribly out of shape to begin with - body fat decreased an average of Particularly dramatic have been gains in strength, an average of 40 percent, Colonel Drews reported, in the four years he has offered the fitness program. This is in large part the result of what may be his most significant contribution to the field of fitness: variable-loading weight training. In traditional weight training, in which an individual lifts to his full capacity each time he works out, strength development generally levels off after three or four months.
Colonel Drews discovered that by varying the amount lifted in each session, development could continue for as many as six months. View all New York Times newsletters. Colonel Drews's efforts have an impact beyond the officers at the War College. Only 5 percent of all colonels get to spend a year at Carlisle, with the ones who are selected deemed to be the generals of the future. As a result, whatever habits and attitudes they develop are closely observed by their peers and subordinates. Soldiers learn more from observing senior officers than anything else.
If the Pentagon has been pleased with Colonel Drews's work at the War College, it has occasionally raised eyebrows at some of his notions. The Type A program - an outgrowth of his conviction that fitness goes beyond the physical - is a perfect example. Many of the attributes linked with Type A behavior - hostility, aggressiveness, competitiveness - have traditionally been looked on as prerequisites to military success.
So, understandably there was some concern expressed by the brass when, in l, Colonel Drews invited Dr. In a program similar to the one he gives to post-cardiac patients, Dr. Friedman and his associates held a series of discussions over a nine-month period. The meetings were intended to isolate the participants' Type A tendencies, to explain those tendencies and their dangerous consequences, and to offer methods to alleviate them, including deep-breathing relaxation techniques.
Colonel Drews and Dr. Friedman had been drawn to each other's work - the colonel because of the doctor's emphasis on the behavioral component of fitness, the doctor because the colonel did not favor the extremes of exertion advocated by some. Friedman, however, believes in no exercise more strenuous than walking.

Asked about this position, Colonel Drews said in Army jargon, ''We're in a noncompliance mode with that. But the rest of the Army was not as enthusiastic as Colonel Drews. They figured we'd have the colonels so laid-back as to ruin their careers. But we negotiated, and eventually came up with some stipulations to which they agreed.
