Author(s): Chewang Doma Bhutia and Dr. R Ram Mohan Singh
The purpose of the study was to assess the effect of low intensity and moderate intensity aerobic dance on total cholesterol and triglyceride in overweight and obese adulthood women. A total of 45 women aged between 20- 30 years with BMI above 25 from Pondicherry University, Puducherry, India voluntarily participated in this study. The participants were randomly divided into three groups namely Low Intensity n=15 (LI), Moderate Intensity n= 15 (MI) and the third was the control group n= 15 (CG). The two experimental groups underwent the specified aerobic dance routine for a period of 12 weeks: three times a week. Total cholesterol and triglyceride were tested in a standard laboratory. The Blood samples drawn from the subjects were tested at the beginning, mid (6 weeks) and after completion of the 12 weeks training programme. Descriptive statistics, ANCOVA and Turkey Post Hoc tests were used for the analysis of the collected data and level of significance (P) was fixed at 0.05 levels. Twelve weeks of low intensity and moderate intensity aerobic dance lead to a decrease in total cholesterol as significant difference was seen in the adjusted post test means of the experimental groups while no changes in the triglyceride was seen in any of the experimental groups after the training programme. In control group no significant difference was seen during any testing during the experimental period. Hence, it was concluded that low intensity and moderate intensity aerobic dance have a positive effect and contributes to good health in overweight and obese adulthood women.
