Effect of 12 Weeks Endurance Training on Plasma Visfatin in Men


(5 صفحه - از 39 تا 43)


Objective: Visfatin, is a novel adipokine, and an adipose tissue-derived hormone shown to correlate with visceral fat mass in patients with obesity. It is not well known whether endurance training – induced change in adipose tissue and blood lipids decreases plasma visfatin or not; thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the effect of 12 weeks endurance training on plasma visfatin in men. Methods: twenty five healthy men (aged 37.5 ± 4.8 years; height 17˽.7 ± 6.5 cm; BMI 25.2 ± 2.6 kg/m2; mean ± SD) participated as subjects in this study. The subjects were randomly assigned to endurance training group (n=15) or control group (n=10). Endurance training group underwent an 12-week intervention, with a frequency of 3 d/wk at an intensity corresponding to 65 – 80% maximum heart rate for 20 – 34 min. Results: results showed that body fat percent, WHR and plasma visfatin were decreased (P<0.05) after endurance training. Maximum oxygen consumption, on the other hand, increases significant (P<0.05) in the training group compared with the control group. Plasma visfatin levels at baseline were positively correlated (P<0.05) with body fat percent and triglyceride concentration. Conclusion: In conclusion, it seems that 12 weeks endurance training induced change in adipose tissue, decrease plasma visfatin in men.
