BACKGROUND: Today, obesity is one of the most serious public health problems in economically advanced countries. Strength training increasing energy expenditure of the body may enhance adaptive capability of the woman’s body and improve woman’s anthropometric parameters. The aim of this study was to compare the influence of different types of circuit training on adaptive potential of the cardiovascular system and anthropometric parameters in young women with class I obesity.
METHODS: Thirty women with class I obesity, aged 31-36, were divided into 2 equal groups and started training. The first group (the endurance group) focused on muscular endurance development, and the second group (the resistance group) was developing muscular strength. The progress was estimated based on Body Mass Index (BMI), body fat percentage (BFP), and adaptive potential values.
RESULTS: Positive changes of BMI, BFP, and adaptive potential were observed in both groups, but the endurance group had a better progress than the resistance group (P<0.02 and P≤0.04, respectively).
CONCLUSIONS: Young women’s body shaping is more effective if it is based on endurance training. Adaptive potential of the cardiovascular system in the examined women has increased equally in both groups (P<0.02).
