Abstract:
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of aerobic exercise combined with circuit training on body weight management. In this study, 40 male recruited as Subjects. They were divided randomly into two groups equal in number exercise group (n=20) and control group (n=20) out of 40 subjects two subjects from TG two subjects from CG with draw training only 36 were able to accomplish the study. The first group (Treatment group) included 20 males treated with AECT 12 weeks. The second group (control group) included 20 males no treatment was given. The subject ages ranged from 22-35 years old, and over weighted with >25 BMI kg/m2 participated in this study. Participants joined sessions for 45-60 min per day, at 55-69% of (MHR); 3 days per week, duration of the study was 3months from November 2016 to january2017. Body weight, BMI, waist circumference, hip circumference and waist to hip ratio were measured pre, during and post the training for both groups. Data was analyzed by using SPSS statistical package software (version 16.0 for window). Paired sample T test was employed for pre and posttest difference assessment. After 12 weeks training The obtained results showed that there was a statistically significant (p<0.05) reduction was observed on Bodyweight, BMI, Waist circumference, Hip Circumference, Waist hip ratio between pretest and posttest. The posttest values of the mean difference was, BW (3,8%), BMI (3.7%), WC (7.3) HC (2.3%) and WHR(6%) on TG participants. Statistically no significant difference between pretest and post test result on BW, BMI, WC, HC and WHR among CG participants. Accordingly, it could be conclude that the aerobic exercise combined with circuit training is effective in body weight management. In consequences, regular combined mode of exercises can contribute great role for body weight management.
