Abstract: 

Background: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 12-week of aerobic training on homocysteine, lipoprotein A and lipid profile levels in sedentary middle-age men.
Methods: This was a quasi-experimental study. Subjects of the study were 24 men (age 40-60) who participated is the study voluntarily and were randomly assigned in aerobic (n=12) and control (n=12) groups. The subjects participated in progressive aerobic training on treadmill 3 times a week (20 min/session (60% maximum heart rate) to 60 min (75% maximum heart rate). Homocysteine, lipoprotein A, triglyceride (TG), cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) were measured before and after 12-week. Data were analyzed using paired t -test and independent t -test statistical methods.
Results: Research findings showed a significant decrease in homocysteine (P=0.002), lipoprotein A (P=0.003), TG (P=0.008), cholesterol (P=0.024) and LDL (P=0.019), significant increase in HDL (P=0.017) in posttest compared to pretest. Furthermore, research findings showed that homocysteine (P=0.005), lipoprotein A (P=0.001), TG (P=0.006), cholesterol (P=0.015), LDL (P=0.022), and HDL (P=0.004) levels between the two groups.
Conclusions: These findings reveal the 3 sessions/week of aerobic training cause reduction of homocysteine, lipoprotein A, and lipid profile levels in sedentary middle-aged men and can be recommended for prevention of cardiovascular disease.
