Abstract

 Aim: SMOKING impairs muscle protein synthesis and increases the expression of myostatin in skeletal muscle. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of 8 weeks RESISTANCE TRAINING on skeletal muscle mass and serum myostatin levels in middle-age smokers and non-smokers.Material and methods: In this quasi – experimental study with pretest – posttest design, fifteen smokers (≥10 cigarettes/day for ≥1 years) and fourteen non-smokers  men matched by age (36.06±5.09 and 35.51±5.17 yr, respectively), and body mass index (28.51±1.77 and 28.33±1.83 kg/m2, respectively) were recruited. RESISTANCE TRAINING program was performed 50-60 min/d, 3d/wk, for 8 weeks. Serum myostatin levels and body composition (DEXA) were measured before and after the intervention.Results: After leg press RESISTANCE TRAINING, bench press, and skeletal muscle mass were significantly increased in both groups (p<0.05). Fat indices (e.g., body mass index and fat mass). however; did not change in response to RESISTANCE TRAINING (P>0.05). Concurrently, serum myostatin levels were significantly decreased in both groups (p<0.05).Conclusion: Short term RESISTANCE TRAINING caused an improvement in muscle mass and strength in middle-age smokers and non-smokers, and this improvement were accompanied by decreases in myostatin serum levels.
