The effect of 8 weeks of aerobic training on serum lipoproteins in non-athletic girls

Atefeh Ghasemof, Ebrahim Khoshnam and Asghar Nikseresht

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of 8 weeks of aerobic training on triglycerides, cholesterol, LDL, and HDL levels in non-athletic girls. The subjects were 20 volunteer girls with the 22.35±2.27 age, 158.50±3.84 height, 73.80±4.59 weight and 29.28±2.17 BMI. The subjects performed aerobic training exercises with 60-65 percent heartbeat. Blood samples were collected before and after 12 weeks of training. Statistical analysis was performed using paired t-test and significance level of the test was considered P<0.05.The results showed that aerobic exercises resulted in a significant decrease in triglyceride levels, cholesterol, LDL and a significant increase in HDL(p=0.001, p=0.001, p=0.001 and p=0.001, respectively).Aerobic training causes changes in serum lipoproteins by activating the lipase enzyme. The results showed that aerobic training had significant effects on blood serum lipoproteins.
