Background: There are evidences that obesity is influenced by physical activity, but the daily nutrition can modify its effect. According to this, the aim of present study was to evaluate the effect of aerobic training on body compositions indices in male rats fed with high fat diet.
Materials and methods: In an experimental trial, 16 Wistar male rats were divided randomly to two groups, including aerobic training + high fat diet group and high fat diet without any aerobic training group. High fat diet was composed of 40% fat, 13% protein and 47% carbohydrate. The training protocol was in progressive form, thus exercise intensity was increased every week. The aerobic training included running at speed of 20 m/min in 1st week and reached to 25 m/min in 12th weeks. Waist circumference, chest circumference, Lee index were measured in first week, end of batten level, end of 6th and 12th weeks.
Results: Intake of high fat diet induced significant increase in the body weight, body mass index (BMI), Lee marker and waist to chest ratio (P=0.001). The aerobic training didn’t have any significant effect on the anthropometric markers of obesity.
Conclusion: The results showed the aerobic training couldn’t decrease body weight, and high fat diet induced negative impression. Therefore, it is recommended that aerobic training alone isn’t effective solution for reducing the weight gain caused by excess calorie intake.
Keywords: High fat diet, Aerobic training, Anthropometric indices.
