Effects of Endurance Jogging on Cardiovascular System and Body Composition in Middle-Aged Women.
Tooshi, Ali
This study investigated the effects of 30 minutes of endurance jogging on pulse rates at rest, during exercise, and at recovery and eight skinfold fat measures in middle-aged women. Subjects were 15 middle-aged women between 30 and 58 years of age who had not been engaged in any exercise program at least for 1 year. Eight sedentary subjects were used as a control group. The program involved continuous progressive jogging; the intensity of work out was set at 14 minutes per mile at the beginning of the program and increased to 8 minutes at the end of the tenth week. The subjects exercised 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week for a total of 16 weeks. A 6-minute submaximal exercise test was administered to all subjects using a Monarch bicycle ergometer; the fasting body weight and eight skinfold fat measures were obtained from all the subjects, using Lange Skinfold Fat Caliper. Results indicate that 30 minutes of jogging produced a significant reduction in resting, exercise, and recovery pulse rates. A significant reduction occurred in skinfold fat measures, and body weight. (Author/JB)
