 Background &Objective: Shift work can be a factor in inflammation, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of 8-week aerobic physical activity on Hs-CRP and blood pressure of the shift workers of Sarir Plast Industrial Group in Dezful.
Materials & methods: The present research is a semi-experimental research that was carried out at the shift workers of the five industrial group of Surirplast. 30 workers, who had an average of 5 years of shift work history, were selected using judgmental sampling technique and were then randomly assigned to the two groups of aerobic physical activity (n=15) and control group (n=15). The experimental group performed 8 weeks, 3 sessions per week with 50-70% THR intensity, according to the schedule. Before and after the plan, the activity, height, BW, BMI, WHR, BFP, VF, Hs-CRP, SBP, DBP and HR were measured. For data analysis, Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Leven test, Mbox-test and ANCOVA were used (p<0.05).
Results: The BW, BMI, WHR, BFP, and VF decreased significantly in the post test for the training group, while the value of Vo2max increased (p<0.05). Also, the results of the study indicated that APA had a significant effect on BW, BMI, WHR, BFP, VF, Hs-CRP, SBP, DBP, and HR.
Conclusion: 8-week Aerobic physical activity was effective in reducing the risk factors of CVD in shift workers; perhaps aerobic physical activity could be used as a non-pharmacological approach to prevent CVD in shift workers.
