Aims: The increased level of Hcy is correlated with the early coronary artery disease, heart attack and Atherothrombosis even among individuals with normal levels of cholesterol and reducing the Hcy levels is correlated with the reduced incidence of heart attack. The present study was conducted aiming at investigating the effect of resistance training and detraining on tHcy and group B vitamins on obese girls.

Methods: For the purpose of this semi-experimental study, 24 individuals with a BMI greater than 30, ready to participate in the study were selected using available sampling method as the subjects of the study. They were divided into two equal experimental and control groups. The subjects of experimental group underwent 8 weeks of resistance training and 10 days of detraining. A pretest was taken before the initiation of trainings, posttest 1 after trainings and posttest 2 after detraining period. After taking of blood sample, in each stage of the test, the concentration of plasma Hcy, B6, B12 and folate vitamins, the content of fat and fat free mass were measured. Data was analyzed using SPSS 16 software and ANOVA with repeated measures.

Results: Just concerning LBM, a significant increase was observed in posttest 1 results in the experimental group comparing the control group (p=0.024 F=6.192). the amount of, B6, B12 and folate vitamins revealed no difference all over the training course in experimental and control groups (p>0.05). In experimental group, power was increased significantly compared with the control group (p=0.01).

Conclusion: Implementation of 8 weeks resistance training and 10 days detraining do not influence the concentrations of plasma tHcy, vitamins B6, B12 and folate vitamins in obese girls.
