The present study examined the effects of endurance training on the lipid profile and testosterone levels in young male judokas. 18 judokas aged 18 to 21 years old participated in the study and were randomly divided into two groups: Exercise (n=9) and control group (n=9). The levels of LDL-C, HDL-C, TC, TG, and TT were measured in the blood samples of the subjects. No significant difference was detected in serum LDL-C in three stages of measurement (i.e. pre-, mid-, and post-test) (p=0.47); however, a significant difference was obtained in serum HDL-C during the three stages (p=0.03). There were no significant differences in serum TC (p=0.78) and TG (p=0.42). In Exercise group, TT levels was 18.98±12.45 in pre-test and it reached 20.56±5.76, but, it again reduced to 19.23±3.94 in Control group, TT levels was 18.76±6.98 in pre-test and it reached 20.35±14.87 while it dropped to 19.12±4.63. There were no significant difference between the stages in both groups (p>0.05).
