Background: that low-grade chronic inflammation is a key principle in pathogenesis in most of the Chronic Non-communicable
Diseases. The aim of the present study is to analyze the effects of the endurance and resistance training on IL-6, TNF-α, IL-10 in
sedentary young women.
Materials and methods: Thirty female volunteer students who were overweight were chosen (BMI≥25), and they were randomly
distributed into three groups of resistance training, endurance training and control. The training groups practiced for twelve
weeks and three times a week with a definite intensity and distance. IL-6, TNF- α, IL-10, weight, fat percentage, BMI and the maximum
oxygen consumption were measured before and after the twelve weeks of exercise.
Results: The results showed that the endurance and resistance trainings, except for BMI have a significant effect upon the
body fat percentage, VO2max, IL-6, TNF-α and IL-10. In addition, there was not a significant difference between the effect of the
resistance and endurance trainings upon the above mentioned variables.
Conclusion: It seems that the endurance and resistance trainings with the significant decrease of the inflammation cytokines
will decrease the chronic Non-communicable diseases in sedentary young women.
