Association of androgenetic alopecia with metabolic syndrome in men: a community-based survey.
Among metabolic syndrome components, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) (OR 2.36, 95% CI 1.41-3.95; P = 0.001) was revealed as the most important factor associated with AGA.

Note: hdl improvement increases as exercise duration increases.

Exercise and HDL Cholesterol Levels
Long duration exercise at moderate intensity is more effective at raising hdl levels than low duration intense exercise.

This is likely because hdl is needed when mobilizing fat stores and long duration exercise burns more fat.

Is Aerobic Exercise the Key to Successful Aging? - The New York Times
These results would seem to indicate that exercise needs to be aerobically taxing to extend telomeres and slow cellular-level aging, says Dr. Christian Werner, a cardiologist and researcher at the University of Saarland in Germany, who led the new study.
“In the parameters we looked at, endurance exercise was clearly ahead of resistance training,” he says.
The reasons might lie with differences in intensity, he adds. “Even though resistance exercise was strenuous,” he says, “the mean pulse rate was much lower than with running,” resulting in slighter blood flow and probably less physiological response from the blood vessels themselves. Those who did resistance training would have produced less of a substance, nitric oxide, that is thought to affect the activity of telomerase and contribute to lengthening telomeres.

But the findings do not indicate that weight training does not combat aging, he says. Like the other workouts, it improved people’s fitness, he says, which is one of the most important indicators of longevity.

Is Aerobic Exercise the Key to Successful Aging?
Dec. 12, 2018 | - The New York Times | By Gretchen Reynolds.

Aerobic activities like jogging and interval training can make our cells biologically younger, according to a noteworthy new experiment. Weight training may not have the same effect, the study found, raising interesting questions about how various types of exercise affect us at a microscopic level and whether the differences should perhaps influence how we choose to move.

The Association between Exercise and Androgenetic Alopecia: A Survey-Based Study
People with male pattern baldness tend to exercise more often, usually low intensity exercise. I would guess this doesn't mean that exercise causing baldness, instead I would guess that baldness is caused by lack of exercise and these individuals crave exercise but are out of shape. Likely the baldness is caused by homeostatic disturbances, particularly amino acid deficiency triggered by poor vitamin homeostasis (and thus poor amino acid conversion).
