The present study was conducted in order to investigate the Influence of selected exercise programme on blood lipid profile of obese sedentary males. Since the purpose of the study was to analyse the changes that may occur due to selected exercise programme on blood lipid profile of obese persons, it was considered necessary to choose untrained individuals who were not the part of any game or sports team and were not engaged in any training or coaching programme. For this purpose, fat percentages of 200 undergraduate sedentary male students were measured. Students were selected from different colleges of Kashmir and their age ranged between 18-25 years, Out of 200 students, 25 obese (having 18% or more than 18% of fat) students were selected as the subjects of this study. Percentage of body fat was recorded at four sites of the body i.e. biceps, triceps, subscapular and suprailliac and the total corresponding value of skin fold at four sites were referred to the help of conversion chart prepared by Durnin and Womersley. Blood samples were taken at rest before and after the training period. Lipid and lipoprotein measurements were done with enzymatic method on auto-analyser. From each subject 5 ml of blood samples were taken twice i.e. pre-test (before exercise programme) and post-test (after 8-weeks programme) respectively. Blood samples were drawn 48 hours after the last exercise bout an attempt to minimize the potential of acute exercise to mark the effect of training on the plasma lipids and lipoproteins. Plasma lipids and lipoproteins variables namely Triglycerides, Cholesterol, HDL-C and LDL and VLDL determined. The selected exercise programme for 8-weeks proved to be effective in significantly decreasing triglycerides, cholesterol, low density lipoprotein and very low density lipoprotein in post-test of obese males.
