  Background: The prevalence of obesity and its complications is rapidly increasing worldwide. Hence, the objective of this study was to determine the effects of 10 week progressive resistance training on serum levels of adiponectin and lipid profiles in obese men.

  Methods: In semi-experimental study, Sixteen obese men (Body Mass Index≥ 30, 18-32 years)) were selected between voluntary subjects and located randomize in to two resistance training (n=8) and control (n=8) groups. The experimental subjects received resistance training program. Progressive resistance training was performed three times a week on alternate days for 10 weeks and included 8 exercises. At baseline and after 10 weeks, Blood samples were taken in 12-14 hours fasting state from all subjects and investigated blood lipid profiles and adiponectin pre-post protocol. The paired and unpaired t-test in <0.05 significantly level were used in the statistical analysis.

  Results : Compared to pre-training, after 10 weeks progressive resistance training, the serum adiponectin levels significantly increased (P<0.05) and total cholesterol levels significantly decreased (P<0.05) in the training group, while it remained unchanged in control subjects (P>0.05).

  Conclusion : According to this study, resistance training because of anti-inflammatory and hypolipidaemic effects has been an effective therapeutic devise to favorable changes in lipid profiles and adiponectin levels in obese individuals.
