Menopause

Changes in level of VO2max, blood lipids, and waist circumference in the response to moderate endurance training as a function of ovarian aging.

The aim of this study was to analyze the influence of moderate endurance training on a set of physiological parameters accompanying menopausal transition.

Study method involved a 12-week moderate intensity Nordic Walking program.

Significant decreases in body mass index (BMI), total fat mass (TF), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), triglycerides (TGs), and waist circumference (WC) and increase in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in premenopausal and perimenopausal women indicate the outstanding role the appropriately chosen moderate endurance training may play in the quality of daily life in perimenopausal women.
