The aim of this study was to investigated effectiveness of 8 weeks of an exercise program with self-control in free time or under control in a gym on metabolic syndrome indices in elementary school boys.
In this randomized clinical trial study, eighty-one overweight or obese Iranian children were randomly assigned to one of the three groups including: control (n = 27)، self– training (n = 27) and under training (n = 27). Both training groups did a same exercise protocol but different condition as self-control training were trained to do their program at home but under training group participated at the gym three times per week. Body fat percent، physical fitness، systolic and diastolic blood pressure and metabolic syndrome indices were measured before and after a two-month exercise.
There was significant difference between the LDL and HDL levels and cholesterol levels in self -training group in compared with control group. However, no significant difference was observed for triglyceride, systolic and diastolic blood pressure and blood sugar of subjects between groups.
It seems that, based on our results, self-control training at home is effective strategy at least for management of metabolic syndrome indices among obese adolescent boys.
