The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes of body composition, serum lipids and several parameters of body fatness (percent body fat, waist-hip ratio) in abdominal women by exercise. For this study, 8-weeks intensive exercise(5km jogging/day, 50min/day) was continued by subjects and they limited only fat rich foods and controlled daily energy intake to 1,800kcal~2,100kcal per day. The subjects were 52 women and the distribution of ages was 36~54 years. The data were analyzed using SPSS/PC package program and the results were estimated by paired t-test, Pearson correlation.The results are summarized as follows : 1) After exercise-training for 8 weeks, percent body fat, body mass index, body weight, total cholesterol was decreased (p<0.05).2) LDL cholesterol and triglyceride was decreased significantly(p=0.000). The changes in deep abdominal adipose tissue were related to changes in triglycerides. 3) After exercise training, the waist-hip ratio was significantly correlated to body weight and serum lipids.4) According to the data of this study, I recommended that obese women, especially, abdominal obese patients should exercise regularly and we should prolong many studies for obesity
