Articles : Effects of Aerobic Training on Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors and Blood CRP Concentration in Elderly Obese Women
The purpose of this study is to elucidate the effects of aerobic training on cardiovascular disease factor and C-reactive protein. Swimming (HRmax ,50-75%, 60 min/day. 5 day/week) was performed and 18 elderly obese women were Participated for study during 12 weeks. They were divided into two groups, one group as experimental group (n=9) and the other as control group (n=9). A measured variables were TC, TG, HDL-C, and C-reactive protein (CRP). Al1 data were expressed as mean± standard deviation by using spss package program (win 9.0). Paired 1-test and independent t-test was used to analyze the difference of variable means value between experimental groups and control group. For all statistics performed statistical significance was set at p < .05. The results are as follows. 1 TC was significantly reduced after intervention (9 mg/dl, p< .01). 2.TG was significantly reduced after intervention (9.56 mg/dl P<.01). 3. HDL-C was significantly increased reduced after intervention(4.34 mg/dl. p < .01). 4. CRP was significantly reduced after intervention (0.06 mg/dI P<.01). This results indicated regular swimming exercise training is beneficial to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease.
Key Words: cardiovascular disease factor, aerobic training, C-reactive protein
