Abstract:   (17781 Views)
Abstract Introduction: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of power exercise on C-reactive protein and plasma fibrinogen in untrained young adult men. Materials & Methodods: The subjects investigated in this research included twenty-four healthy voluntary male students with mean age (25±1.19) years, weight (74.37±5.38) Kg, height (174.70±5.51) cm, whom were divided randomly into two groups : strength group (n=12) and control group (n=12).The strength training consisted of 12 weeks, 3 days per week in circuit pattern in 6 stations. Each training session included three sets with (70, 80, 90%) intensity of one maximum repetition (1RM) with 8, 10, and 12 repetitions in every station respectively. The rest time between each set was 30 to 60 seconds and it was 2 to 4 minutes for each station .The amount of serum CRP and plasma fibrinogen was measured by special kits, Immunoturbidimetric assay with high sensitivity and coagulative method after 12 hours fasting. Data were analyzed by dependent and independent t-test (0.05) through statistical software SPSS/16. Findings: Results showed that power exercise cause significant decrease in C-reactive protein, fibrinogen and body fat percentage. Discussion and conclusion: The results suggest, with any doubt that, as strength trainings have inverse effect on CRP and fibrinogen, so it can be used as predictors of coronary heart disease.
Keywords: C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, maximum strength
