Abstract
Exercising and practicing exercise can improve the body's health and ultimately improve one's mental health and mental strength. But the timing and manner of exercise and the types of exercise and its beneficial effects have not been clearly explained to the community. For this reason, it is necessary to conduct research in this field, especially in order to achieve appropriate physiological results and increase body function after exercise. Few studies have been conducted on the physiological effects of Pilates training with crocin on postmenopausal women. The purpose of this present study was to evaluate the effect of eight weeks of Pilates training with crocin consumption on new cardiovascular biomarkers in postmenopausal women.
In this study, forty postmenopausal women were selected purposefully and randomly divided into 4 groups (Crocin consumption group, Pilates exercise group and Pilates exercise group with Crocin consumption and control group). Pilates practiced for 8 weeks (3 sessions per week). Lipocalin-2 levels were measured before and after 8 weeks. Data analysis and testing of research hypotheses were performed using ANCOVA and ANOVA (f test). Also, t-test was used to determine the intra-group changes in each group at pre-test and post-test. Statistical analysis was performed at the significant level P≤0.05 using SPSS software version 23.
The results showed that 8 weeks of Pilates training with crocin did not significantly change the levels of lipocalin-2.
The lack of significant change in lipocalin-2 levels was due to insufficient exercise intensity, which could not significantly decrease adipose tissue.
