Abstract

Background/Objectives: this study, 8 week bicycle exercise program will be conducted to the participants in their middle age to find out the effects on health indicators and inflammation indicators. The ultimate purpose of this study is to provide scientific and systematic exercise information that can help improve health and cardiovascular disease. Methods/Statistical analysis: For women in their 50s, a total of 32 bike rides for 50 minutes per day for 8 weeks were conducted four times a week. blood tests were conducted before 8 weeks of cycling and after participation in the 8-week cycling program. Descriptive statistics according to each measurement period were presented, and a dependent t-test was applied to determine the treatment effect. The significance level of interpretation was conducted at .05. Findings: Regarding health indicators, descriptive statistics showed positive changes in fat, BMI, SBP, DBP, TG, and HDL. However, as a result of dependent t-test analysis, only HDL showed statistically significant difference (t=-2.68, p=.03), and there was no statistical difference in other indicators. The descriptive statistics of the inflammation index CRP showed positive changes. However, there was no statistically significant difference (t=.583, p=.58). Improvements/Applications: This study is expected to be used as the basic data to study the health improvement effect of middle-aged women through regular cycling exercise, and ultimately support and successfully advise middle-aged women's health management.
