It has been proven in studies that out of the hemorheological parameters, plasma viscosity is an independent risk factor in many pathologies, such as atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease, in addition to inflammatory diseases. Sola and colleagues (2007) showed that the rheological disturbances (fibrinogen and plasma viscosity) seem to be associated with insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome in obese patients (1). Reports concerning the association of physical activity with markers of inflammation, coagulation, and fibrinolysis are ambiguous. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of 4 weeks of combined analyzed sit-up and walking training with two different volumes on fibrinogen, plasma viscosity and insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR) in college, young men.
In this semi-experimental study, 18 subjects with age range 19 to 25 years selected as research subjects and were randomly divided into two groups; In group 1the main program included 15 minutes of sit-up exercise, followed by the 30 minutes walking training (15 minute sit-up +30 minute walking). The main program in Group 2 included 30 minutes of sit-up exercise, followed by the 15 minutes walking training (30 minute sit-up +15 minute walking). The study sit-up
