This study analyzed the association between time and bouts of sedentary behavior (SB) and cardiometabolic markers in adolescents. A total of 549 adolescents (10-14 years old) was from João Pessoa (PB). The time and number of bouts < 30 and ≥ 30 minutes of SB (100 counts/minute) was measured by accelerometer. The cardiometabolic markers used were: glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides, high (HDL-C) and low (LDL-C) lipoproteins density, body mass index (BMI) and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Higher time and number of bouts < 30 minutes of SB were associated with lower total cholesterol and LDL-C in males. The number of bouts < 30 was inversely associated with BMI in both sexes and bouts ≥ 30 minutes positively in the female.
