Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in plasma C reactive protein (CRP) and Serum amyloid A (SAA) levels following 8 weeks of circuit resistance training in obese men.
Methodology: Twenty six obese men (age; 36.8±7.9 yr, weight; 92.8±10.8 kg, and BMI; 31.5±2.8 kg/m2) voluntarily participated in this study, and were divided into control (n=13) and resistance training (n=13) groups. Subjects in training group performed eight weeks circuit resistance training with 50-85% 1RM (3 days/week). Anthropometrics parameters, as well as plasma levels of CRP and SAA were measured at the baseline and at the end of study.
Results: Eight weeks of resistance training induced significant reduction in body weight, BMI and body fat percentage (P≤0.05). Significant reduction in plasma CRP concentration was found in compare with control group (P≤0.05). Plasma SAA levels increased in both control and training groups when compared with baseline levels (P≤0.05), But there was no significant difference in SAA levels changes between two groups.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that circuit resistance training decreases plasma CRP levels, associated with improved in body composition in obese men.
