Beside the obvious increment in contribution to exercise programs 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 circumference.
Discussion: Exercise provides significant 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.

Key words: 

treadmill protocol, heart rate, LDL-C, HDL-C.
