The results for the anthropometric variables, body composition, and hypertriglyceridemic waist phenotype (HW) before and after the MPOT in the obese subjects (n=25) and the severely obese subjects (n=19) are presented in Table 1.
The findings indicate that the mPot reduced the prevalence of HW phenotype in both obese and severely obese adolescents with no significant difference between them.
These results are similar to what was found during the MPOT in the present study.
Future studies evaluate the changes in the prevalence of the HW phenotype in addition to other cardiometabolic and anthropometric variables following a MPOT intervention in other populations.
Anthropometric Variables, Body Composition, and Phenotype Waist Hypertriglyceridemic Before and After the MpOt in Obese Subjects (n=25) and Severely Obese Subjects (n=19).
For these variables also the MPOT has promoted significant improvement in systolic and diastolic blood pressure, aerobic fitness, flexibility, abdominal strength and upper limb (pull ups), showing an improvement of 16.93 and 10.84, 6.83, 13.5, 14.07 and 49.64% respectively.
The MPOT interfere with blood pressure levels of adolescents, showing up an efficient means of treatment and possible preventive agent for heart disease.
Figure 1 shows the comparison of the evolution of girls and boys in the MPOT. It could be seen that the girls showed more significant results than boys, except for waist-hip ratio (WHR) and flexibility test (FT).
The Table 4 shows the mean scores before and after intervention of 16 weeks MPOT. The scales which shows the highest scores before the intervention were related to health status, followed by strength, coordination and habitual physical activity.
