Introduction & Objective: Methamphetamines increase free radicals and induce oxidative stress in the body. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of eight weeks of Pilates training on serum levels of Sirt-1 and some physical fitness in methamphetamine addicted men.
Methods: This study is a quasi-experimental study with quasi-addict men in the study population, 44 of whom were randomly divided into two groups, Exercise and control group. Were. The Pilates exercise protocol was performed for 8 weeks, three sessions per week and each session for 60 minutes. Blood samples were obtained from pre-and post-test 5 ml of brachial vein. Independent t-test was used to determine the significant differences between groups in the pre-test and post-test of dependent variables.
Results: Sirt-1 levels in the control group remained unchanged (p <0.05) but in the exercise group there was a significant increase (p <0.05). Flexibility and endurance in control group showed no significant change after eight weeks (p <0.05), but in exercise group after 8 weeks of intervention there was a significant increase (p <0.05).
Conclusion: Based on the present findings, Pilates training may be used as an important non-pharmacological agent to reduce oxidative stress and enhance muscle endurance and flexibility.
Type of Study: Research | Subject: Exercise Physiology
