Background: Dyslipidemia and a sedentary lifestyle are well-recognized risk factors for atherosclerotic heart disease. Objective: The aim of this study was to ascertain the effect of short-term aerobic exercise on the lipid profile of individuals engaged in regular exercise for 8 weeks. Methods: The lipid profile of 50 apparently healthy female students practiced regular aerobic exercise (mean age 20.5 ± 1 year) was analyzed using enzymatic and colorimetric methods. Results: There was a significant decrease (p<0.05) in serum level of Low-Density LipoproteinCholesterol (LDL-C), in females practice regular aerobic exercise for 8 weeks, and there was a significant difference in serum level of Total Cholesterol (TC), Triglyceride (TG) and High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) (p<0.05) when comparing pre and post exercises levels of lipid profiles, regular participants showed a significant decrease in TC, TG, and LDL. TC, TG, LDL, VLDL, significantly decrease while HDL-C significantly increases. Conclusion: Short term aerobic exercise improves HDL-C and decreases TG, TC, LDL, VLDL, so decrease the risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).
