Background:Cardiac diseases are the main cause of 50% of death post menopause. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of water aerobic training with and without green tea on some cardiovascular risk factors and body composition of sedentary postmenopausal women conducted at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in 2012.
Materials and Methods: In the present experimental study, a total of 30 sedentary postmenopausal women with the mean age of 57.03±6.62 years were randomly divided into three groups (aerobic exercise in water, green tea, exercise + green tea). The aerobic exercise in water program for the exercise group and the exercise group + green tea was eight weeks with a frequency of three sessions per week with an intensity of 55-70% of maximal heart rate. Green tea and exercise groups + Green tea consumed six grams of dried green tea powder daily in three meals. Data were analyzed using dependent sample t-test and one-way ANOVA at a significance level of P<0.05.
Results: The results of the study showed that eight weeks of interventional intervention could not change the liposomal and tonicity indices. However, aerobic power increased in all three groups, while intergroup changes were not meaningful.
Conclusion: Aerobic exercise in water for eight weeks alone and along with the use of green tea did not have an effect on the improvement of benign and lipid indices in active postmenopausal women, while increasing their aerobic capacity.
