Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to determine whether aerobic water exercise (AWE) have any effects on somato- phyisiological symptoms of depression (SSD), or not.
In this respect, Untrained male college students (n=48 aged= 23.2
±2.7 years) with mild depression (score 14-19 in BDI.II) randomly assigned to experimental (n=24) and control (n=23) groups. Before and after 12 weeks (AWE) HPA changes was examined by dexamethason suppression test (DST). Other (SSD) including sleep quality, sense of healthful, sexual desire, apetite, sense of tiredness and havinf desire to do work and activity were assayed as described in Beck depression inventory. Total weight, lean body mass and rest heart rate were measured. Eventually the results showed that plasma cortisol response to dexamethason and appetite had positive but not significant changes, and other symptoms and total grads had significant (P<0.05) change toward improvement (SSD).
For the final conclusion, we can say that (AWE) have not effect on PA function but have positive effects on other somato- physiological symptoms of mild depression. Thus (AWE) might be useful for diminishing and improvement of mild depression and prevention of Suppression Test.
