Background: Military personnel need endurance training for increasing physical fitness and health in their jobs. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of ranger training on muscular endurance and lipid profile in military students.
Materials and methods: In this semi-experimental study, 24 sophomore students from a military university were randomly selected and divided into experimental and control groups. Firstly, the subjects warmed up for 15 minutes, then they performed muscle endurance test (pre-test), and finally the results were recorded. After two days, the subjects returned to the laboratory and blood sampling was performed to assess lipid profiles (cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, and HDL). Then, the experimental group performed eight-week ranger training program. To collect the data in the post-test, the subjects performed the test again, and then blood tests were carried out. Independent t-test was used at the significant level of p<0.05 to analyze the data.
Results: The results showed that eight-week ranger training did not have a significant effect on muscular endurance of the students. In addition, there was no significant effect on cholesterol, triglyceride, LDL, and HDL.
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, it seems that some changes have to be made in order for effectiveness of physical fitness improvement programs and health in military students.
