Abstract

Introduction: Although exercise his effects on human immune system, but its causes is
not significantly cleared yet. This study is aimed to investigate the effect of exercise with
moderate and high intensity, on changes of respiratory burst activities and neutrophil
counts in college judoists.
Methods: 10 male college judoists participated in this quazi-experimental study. Subjects
run on a treadmill for 60 min at 45% (low-intensity exercise) in first week and in second
week run with 75% (high-intensity exercise) heart care. Blood was drawn immediately
before and after exercise. Paired t-test was used for data analysis by means of SPSS 11.5
and P<0.05 was the significance level.
Results: The result showed that, increase in neutrophil count and neutrophil respiratory
burst activities, after high-intensity exercise, is significant (P<0.05), whereas, this was
not observed significantly after low intensity exercise.
Conclusion: An increase in neutrophil count and respiratory burst activities were
significantly associated with high intensity exercise, however, the effect of low intensity
exercise was not significant.
