Comparison of lipid profile in physically trained adults and sedentary adults

Author(s): Satish Ambadas Pawar


The incidence of diseases like angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, hypertension and cerebrovascular is increasing nowadays. The high blood lipid level is found to be the main cause of atherosclerosis. Present study is undertaken with the aim to evaluate the effect of physical training on BMI, Waist-hip ratio and lipid profile. Our research is focussed to study the Effect of Physical Training on Serum Lipids in physically trained adults and sedentary adults. To compare lipid profile between physically trained adult and sedentary adult. The study was conducted on 50 male physically trained adults and 50 male sedentary adults in the age group between 30-40 years. Following parameters were evaluated: Total cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL, LDL and VLDL. There is statistically highly significant decrease in BMI, Waist-hip ratio, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL- C, VLDL- C, and highly significant increase in HDL- C in physically trained adults as compared to sedentary adults. From the results, it is concluded that combination of aerobic exercise and games causes highly significant decrease in total cholesterol, TG, LDL- C, VLDL-C and increase in HDL-C. Thus, combination of aerobic exercise and games is more beneficial instead of only aerobic exercise and hence should be recommended.
