Beside the obvious
day by day. Exercise is an important cornerstone for weight loss.
Studies have observed that endurance athletes compared to sedentary
people, have higher HDL-C and lower TG concentration. Material and
method:We used treadmill protocol and during three month, for energy
balance, calorie intake reduced 500kilocalorie per day and applied
1775 kilocalorie diet. Determination of exercise heart rate used
maximal rate method(220-age). Results: When we
compared the basal
values with the values obtained after three months we observed
decrease of 8kg(10%) in body weight, 12,5% in body fat, 18% in
resting heart rate, 9,6% in waist circumference and 8% in hip
decrement on total cholesterol, LDL-C, and TG. Current findings
proclaims that endurance type of exercise has positive effects on
lipid subgroups, especially serum TG and HDL-C cholesterol.
