Background & Aim: Liver enzymes are associated with obesity and various components of metabolic syndrome. The manifestation of this syndrome is accompanied by a high risk of diabetes and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The aim of this research was to investigate the effects of eight weeks of intense and moderate rhythmic exercise on some liver enzymes and functional performance in obese women.
Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 30 obese women aged 35 to 45 years who were sedentary were selected using convenience sampling and then randomly allocated into three groups: moderate-intensity rhythmic exercise (n=9), intense rhythmic exercise (n=10), and control (11 participants). One-way ANOVA and paired t-test were used for intra- and intergroup comparisons.
Results: The concentrations of aspartate aminotransferase, gamma-glutamyl transferase, and triglycerides decreased significantly in the intense exercise group and the moderate exercise group. Alanine aminotransferase levels only showed a significant decrease in the intense exercise group (P=0.05). Fat accumulation index was significantly reduced only in the moderate exercise group (P=0.009). Maximum oxygen consumption and flexibility increased significantly in the intense and moderate exercise groups (P=0.001), but agility decreased significantly in both exercise groups at the end of the training period (P=0.001).
Conclusion: Rhythmic exercises with different intensities training can be an effective method to improve liver enzymes and functional indicators in obese women.
