BONE METABOLISM MARKERS IN RESPONSE TO CIRCUIT TRAINING AND HONEY SUPPLEMENTATION IN YOUNG MALES
This study investigated the effects of 6 weeks combined circuit training programme and honey supplementation on bone metabolism markers in young males. Forty male participants were divided into four groups (n=10 per group): sedentary without honey supplementation control (C), sedentary with honey supplementation (H), circuit training without honey supplementation (Ex), circuit training with honey supplementation (HEx) groups. Circuit training was carried out one hour/session, 3 times/week. Participants in H and HEx consumed 300 mL of honey drink containing 20 g of Tualang honey for 7 days/week. Immediately before and after six weeks of experimental period, blood samples were taken for measuring concentrations of serum total calcium, serum alkaline phosphatase as bone formation marker and serum C-terminal telopeptide of type 1 collagen (1CTP) as bone resorption marker. There was significantly (p<0.05) greater serum alkaline phosphatase concentration in HEx at post test compared to pre test value. Meanwhile, significant (p<0.05) reduction in serum 1CTP were found in both H and HEx groups at post test compared to their pre test value respectively. Combination of circuit training and honey supplementation elicited greater effects on bone turnover markers generally compared to circuit training alone, honey supplementation alone and sedentary without honey supplementation.
