Mean ± standard deviation. HDL-c = high density lipoprotein; TAG= triacylglycerol; Non HDL= non high density lipoprotein; BDNF= brain derived neurotropic factor; mmol/L = millimole per liter; ng·mL-1 = nanograms per milliliter; HSG = high intensity aerobic exercise combined strength group; CG = control group;
* = significant difference compared with the pre-training moment (p < 0.05);
† = significant difference compared with the control group (p < 0.05).
