Abstract

Objectives: To determine the effect of resisted exercise to both quadriceps and whole-body vibration on muscle mass of lower limbs and optimal health for overweight women. Design: Forty overweight women with age from 50 to 60 years old and BMI from 25 kg/m2 to 29.9 kg/m2 free from any disease were included in the study. All women assigned in one study group, resisted exercise to both quadriceps and whole-body vibration. The initial evaluation of weight, BMI, muscle mass, fat mass, water content, lower limb muscle mass, 6 minutes walking distance and optimal health questionnaire, revaluation done after two months and final eventuation after 4 months of treatment was done. Results: Study showed that resisted exercise to both quadriceps and whole-body vibrations increase muscle mass of both lower limbs and optimal health for overweight women. Conclusion: Resisted exercise to both quadriceps and whole-body vibrations are effective in increase of lower limbs muscle mass and optimal health for overweight women.
