And in other findings, it was shown that despite the significance difference which has been seen among pretest and post-test, due to the lack of significant difference between empirical and control groups in this variable after the empirical group did the exercises, it was concluded that aerobic exercises hasn't had a significant impact on the ratio of the high density lipoprotein to low density lipoprotein of the working women.
Although the rate of positive effectiveness in most of the research variables was obtained by using the dyadic comparison test (dependent t), but after comparing the control and empirical groups in the post-test, except for low density lipoprotein, none of the other variables have shown a significant difference.
