Author(s): Dr. P UMA
The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of aerobic exercise with functional training and dietary calcium supplementation on selected body composition parameters among men with Osteopenia. The cross-sectional investigation of bone health and nutrition a total of 165 male aged 50-60 years were selected from Salem and surrounding communities. The screening of body composition was carried out at shri Gokulam Hospital by using DEXA scan; among 165 male, 88 male are having osteopenia. From this 88 male, 40 male Osteopenia subjects were randomly selected. The subjects were assigned into two group’s namely Experimental group I underwent Aerobic exercise with functional strength training (AEFST), experimental group II underwent only Dietary supplementation (DS), experimental group III underwent Combined training (CAEFST & DS) for a period of twelve weeks, five days per week and group VI acted as control group. The study was formulated as a true random group design consisting of pre - test and post –test. The experimental group participated in the treatment for a period of 12 weeks. Initial test were conducted for all the subjects on selected body composition parameters like Fat Mass, Lean Mass and Bone Mineral Density by using Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA, DPX-NT, NT+73679 GE LUNAR MEDICAL SYSTEM) of the Whole Body scan. The post-test is conducted on the above said parameters after the 12 weeks for the four groups. The results proved that there was a significant reduction in fat mass, increase in muscle mass and significant improvement in bone mineral density among men with Osteopenia.
