Background and Objective: Training vascular occlusion leads to metabolic changes that suggest mechanical stress. The present study sought to evaluate the effect of two weeks of resistance training with or without the vessel occlusion, the serum levels of CRP and lactate dehydrogenase active girls are normally raised.
Subjects and Methods: Thirty six of Physical Education girl students of Shahid chamran University of Ahvaz with an average age of 20.51 ±1.39 y and BMI 23.32 ± 2.79 were divided into three groups: resistance training with vascular occlusion hand (exercise at 30% of one repetition maximum with closing of tourniquet around the proximal arm), resistance training without occlusion (exercise at 75% of one repetition maximum) and control group. Both training exercise groups performed a two-week training program consisting three sessions/week. Blood samples were taken before the start of training and 24 h after the last training session for measurement of CRP and lactate dehydrogenase.
Results: After 2 weeks of resistance training with and without vascular occlusion, in both training group index of muscle damage (LDH) and index of inflammatory (CRP) in relation with control group showed a significant increase (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: The overall results of this study showed that two-week resistance training in both groups muscle damage and inflammatory response is effective. Short-term activities cause muscle damage but the intensity of the damage in without vascular occlusion group was higher than with vascular occlusion group.
