Abstract

The popularity of food supplements and nutrients such as arginine and citrulline, which increase nitric oxide production and are commonly used before exercise, have increased dramatically over the past decade. Nitric oxide regulates important physiological functions and is recognized as an important factor in the relaxation of endothelial vessels during exercise.It is an undeniable fact that resistance training(RT) is a potent stimulus for muscle hypertrophy and strength gain, but it is less understood whether RT can increase maximal aerobic capacity (VO2max). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of eight weeks of resistance training combined with pomegranate extract ingestion on maximum oxygen consumption in inactive male students. 32 non-active male students were randomly assigned to three groups: resistance training program (20.7 ± 1.9 years old, n=11), resistance training program combined with pomegranate extract ingestion (21.2 ± 1 year, n=11) and control (20.8 ± 1.3 years, n=10) groups. Resistance training programs were performed for 8 weeks (3 sessions per week, 4 movements, 3 sets with 60-70% 1 RM), and resistance training combined with pomegranate extract ingestiongroup consumed 100 ml pomegranate extract 30 min before exercise.Subjects’ maximum oxygen consumption was measured by Gas Analyzer before and after training period. For statistical analysis, the paired t-testand ANOVA tests were used for analyzing intra-group and between-groups differences respectively. The results showed that maximum oxygen consumedwas significantly increased (from 39.94 ±3.64 to 43.36 ± 3.70 ml/ Kg / min) in the resistance training + pomegranate extract ingestion group (p≤0.05), but a significant decrease (from 45.66 ±4.18 to 42.86 ±3.83 ml / kg /min) at maximum oxygen Consumption was observed after exercise program in resistance training group (P ≤ 0.05). Therefore, it seems that pomegranate extract ingestion increases maximum oxygen consumption by increased blood flow and the subsequent increase in oxygen supply to the muscles and compensate the negative effect of resistance training on VO2 max.
