Aim. The aim of this study is to compare the effects of anaerobic swimming and aerobic running on lipid-lipoproteins profiles in obese adolescents.
Methods. Study participants consisted of 45 young boys (15 control, 15 swimming, and 15 running) overweight (BMI between 27.3 to 33.2 kg·m-2) adolescents, aged 13.5 to 17 yr, studied before and after a 8-wk swimming and running. LDL-C, HDL-C, triglyceride (TG), and total cholesterol (TC) were assessed via blood samples that were drawn from an antecubital vein.
Results. there were no significant differences in the experimental group for TG compared with the control group (P>0.05). There were differences between experimental groups and control for TC, and, HDL-C (P<0.05). There were no differences between experimental groups and control for LDL-C (P>0.05).
Conclusion. According to research findings, it is suggested that in order to get suitable alternation in lipid-lipoproteins, the aerobic exercise must include anaerobic partion.
