Already, over 15% of people around the world are obese, and the obesity epidemic caused by the proliferation of life without mobility and easy access to high-fat, high-fat foods has led to the increasing prevalence of numerous obesity-related illnesses.The purpose of this study was to compare the two methods of parallel exercise and ginger consumption on visfatin and metabolic syndrome indices in overweight women.
32 overweight women (mean age 30-45 years) were randomly divided into four groups of 8 individuals each: Group 1 - resistance training and ginger consumption, group 2 resistance training + intense periodic exercise and ginger consumption, group 3 - Intense Intermittent Exercise + Resistance Exercise and Ginger Consumption and Group 4 - Intense Intermittent Exercise and Ginger Consumption. Subjects participated in a parallel exercise program for 8 weeks, three sessions per week and each session for 5 minutes. All subjects consumed ginger in 250 mg capsules for 8 weeks by maintaining the calorie intake of the fixed diet in four meals. Blood samples were taken 2 hours before the first training session and 2 hours after the last training session. Data were analyzed using covariance analysis and dependent t-test.
Findings showed that eight weeks of exercise and ginger consumption significantly decreased the visfatin, insulin resistance of overweight women (p <0.05). However, there was no significant effect on fat profile and BMI (P> 0.05).
It seems that parallel training (resistance + periodic) training is more effective than other training protocols in reducing some metabolic syndrome indices.
