Abstract

INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of interval training and aerobic exercise on the cardiovascular fitness and arterial stiffness in metabolic syndrome.
METHOD
Participants were randomly assigned an interval training group(n=10) or a aerobic exercise group(n=10). Interval training(80-90% of HRR or 60% of HRR, 40min) and aerobic exercise(60% of HRR, 50min) have performed 5times a week for 12weeks. Metabolic risk factor, cardiorespiratory and arterial stiffness were measured at before and after 12 weeks from each group.
RESULT
The metabolic syndrome risk factors(weight, %fat, waist circumference, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, triglyceride, and HDL-Cholesterol) were significantly improvement than those after treatment in both interval training and aerobic exercise groups before treatment, with no significant group difference. The VO 2 max were significantly increased than those after treatment in both interval training and aerobic exercise groups before treatment, with no significant group difference. The Pulse Wave Velocity were significantly increased than those after treatment in both interval training and aerobic exercise groups before treatment, with no significant group difference.
CONCLUSION
Interval training and aerobic exercise had improvement effects on cardiovascular fitness and arterial stiffness in metabolic syndrome patients.
