ABSTRACT
This study was performed to investigate the effect of regular aerobic exercise on body composition by bioelektrik impedance analysis (BIA) methods, respiratory function parameters and physical performance levels. 20 men and 10 women, total 30 long-distance elite master athletes who had joined World, European and The Balkans Championships in Athletics and into at least one degree, were included in the study. The body composition such as skeletal muscle mass, body fat weight, Waist-hip ratio and percent body fat was measured on bioelectrical impedance analysis (MF-BIA8; InBody 720, Biospace, Korea). Forced vital capacity (FVC), Maximum Volantary Ventilations (MVV) and Vital Capasity (VC) were determined from respiratory function parameters.Indirect Maximal Oxygen Capasity (VO2 Max), were measured on Astrand Rhyming nomogram (Monark 839E, Swedish). The datas were evaluated statistically by SPSS 15.0 program. Mann – Whitney U test was used for the evaluation for the difference between the two groups. In this study, physical and physiological profiles of the master athletes was shown in elite master athletes. Consequently It was concluded that regular aerobic exercise exerts positive effects on body body composition and physical performance in elite master athletes.
