Background: Regarding the importance of prevention of cardiovascular disease during menopause the purpose of present study was evaluating the influence of eight weeks progressive aquatic exercise on serum Apoproteins of A and B and lipoproteins in obese and normal weight menopause women.

Materials and Methods: This was a semi-experimental study in which 29 menopause women from Isfahan (age: 57.4 ±4.68 years) voluntarily participated in it. According to body mass index (BMI), participants were divided to obese (n=15, BMI= 30.21 ±3.90) or normal weight (n=14, BMI=22.44 ±2.25) groups. Subjects of both groups participated in 8 weeks aquatic exercise, three times a week, by progressive intensity of 50 to 70% of maximal heart rate and duration of 45 minutes.

Results: Findings of study indicated a significant influence of exercise on VLDL, Apo A and B and ApoB/ApoA in in obese group. In normal weight group, exercise caused significant changes in LDL, VLDL, Apo A and B and ApoB/ApoA, but there was no significaut difference between groups in none of study variables.

Conclusion: According to our findings, progressive aquatic aerobic exercise induces similar reduction of some cardiovascular risk factors especially ApoB and ApoB/ApoA and increasing ApoA in obese and normal weight menopause women.
