Introduction: Leptin, the generated obese gene and as an anti-obesity hormone that plays a key role in have regulated weight. We aimed to investigate the effects of eight weeks selected aerobic training on serum leptin levels, anthropometric indices and maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) in obese men.

Material and Methods: 20 healthy elderly women were selected by convenience sampling method and were randomly assigned to control (n=10) and experimental (n=10). The program training include: 40 min per session, 3 times per week for 8 weeks participate in aerobic exercise with 55-60 HRR%. Pre and post of aerobic exercise, serum leptin levels, anthropometric indices and VO2max evaluated. To make intra and intergroup comparisons t-test for dependent and independent samples were used. For all statistical comparisons, the level of significance was set at p<0.05.

Results: Eight weeks aerobic exercise lead to increase of Vo2max (p=0.00) significantly. The amount of leptin (p=0.007), weight (p=0.002), BMI (p=0.003), body fat percent (p=0.002) and WHR (p=0.013) in sedentary obese men in experimental group reduced significantly.  The variations of between groups in weight, BMI, BFP, WHR and Vo2max in two groups have differences.

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that selected aerobic training have favorable influence on improvement of serum leptin levels and VO2max in obese men.

Keywords: Leptin, Vo2max, Obese men
