For sample adults who had participated in bowling in the past 2 weeks (EXBOWL), EXBOWLNO reports the number of times the respondent had participated in bowling over those 2 weeks.

After the interviewer determined that a respondent participated in bowling, respondents were asked, "How many times in the past 2 weeks did you bowl?"

Respondents were also asked how many minutes on average they had spent bowling each time during the past 2 weeks (EXBOWLMIN) and how much their heart rate or breathing had increased while bowling (EXBOWLBR).
