Aerobic exercises like walking, running, cycling scores for ordinary persons to improve their physical fitness and health. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of tread mill exercise and ergometer cycling on lipid profile and also to compare the tread mill and ergometer cycle to identify the better instrument which favours the lipid profile. This study includes 80 subjects, of these 40 subjects were in control group (Group A) and 40 subjects were in aerobic training (study group). The study group is further subdivided into two groups. Group B consists of 20 subjects who underwent treadmill training and Group C consists of 20 subjects who underwent cycling. Inclusion criteria are healthy subjects, without any history of pathological or orthopaedic limitation to activity, and they were not engaged in other exercise programmes. Subjects were recruited from Thanjavur Medical College Hospital and Raja Mirasudhar Hospital, Thanjavur. This study was conducted in the research laboratory, department of physiology, Thanjavur Medical College, Thanjavur, using Treadmill (Cardiotrack 900 XL, Whispermill, Browndove Health care Ltd, Bangalore) 100 steps/ min for 1 hour, and bicycle ergometer (Aerofit India, Hyderabad) 60-70 RPM for 15 minutes. Study subjects underwent aerobic training (moderate exercise) protocol, five days in a week, one hour per day on tread mill for Group B individuals and five days in a week, fifteen minutes per day on the cycle for Group C individuals. Total duration of training was 12 weeks. The full lipid profile was done before the start of the exercise programme for all subjects. Comparison of running versus cycling, and aerobic training group versus sedentary (control) group are of primary significance. After 12 weeks of aerobic exercise training, lipid profile in comparison with the three groups was statistically analysed.
