Identifying potential risk factors associated with the development of hypo kinetic diseases among teen age population and finding out preventive strategies is vital in today scenario as early intervention can prevent the onset of such diseases including coronary heart disease and Diabetes mellitus. The effects of an endurance training program on body composition fasting blood sugar and insulin was examined among forty male under graduate students (Age: 19.63 ± 1.27; Height: 1.70±0.06, Weight: 66.20± 13.35, BMI: 22.99 ± 4.38) who were randomly assigned either to an experimental group (N =20) or a Control Group (N = 20). The experimental group underwent an endurance training program for tewelve weeks while the control group maintained their regular routine. The experimental group trained three to five sessions in a week and 25 to 50 min per session with a gradual increase in the number of sessions and duration as the program progresses. Height, Weight, and BMI were measured before (Pre) and after (Post) the training program. Fasting blood samples were collected 24 hours before, and 48 hours after the training period and analyzed for blood glucose and insulin levels. The obtained data were statistically analyzed using ANACOVA to find out significant difference if any. The result shows a significant reduction in Body Weight, BMI, Fasting blood sugar and Insulin in the experimental group when compared with the control group.
