C-reactive protein (CRP) and fibrinogen has been proposed as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Physical activity has recently been established as a potential modifier of the inflammatory process, suggesting that it mitigates inflammation and consequently reduces the incidence of several chronic diseases such as cardiovascular events. This research aims to explore the impact of exercise type on Inflammatory Markers CRP and fibrinogen in aging men. For this purpose, 30 male subjects (age 60-70) voluntarily participated in our study. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of three groups: Endurance training, Resistance training and control group. The experimental training programs were performed three days a week for 8 weeks at a definite intensity and distance. Before and after 8 weeks intervention, blood samples were taken (5cc) in fasting state from all subjects. Data were analyzed by one way analysis of variance (p≤ 0.05). Results showed that endurance and resistance training caused a significant decrease in the serum CRP and plasma fibrinogen levels of the experimental group in comparison to control group. Therefore our findings support the hypothesis that endurance and resistance training caused a decrease in the inflammatory markers and probably is decreased future cardiovascular risk in aging men.
