The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of regular aerobic exercises with diet control on weight
reduction on obese children.
Subjects and Methods:
Thirty children with overweight (age ranged from eight to twelve years) were included in the study.
The children were randomly divided into two equal groups. The exercise group received ten weeks physical activities program
included upper limb, lower limb, and trunk and neck exercises as well as running three sessions per week (in the first four weeks
the session lasted for about 40 minutes and in the last six weeks the session extended to be 50 minutes. Body mass index and
waist-to-hip ratio and waist circumference) were used to assess the children weight before and after three months of the treatment
The results revealed statistically significant improvement in the measuring variables of both groups when comparing
their pre and post treatment mean values. Comparing the two groups? post ?treatment variables, significant difference is revealed
