This study attempted to examine the effect on testosterone, blood lipid according to the intake of DHEA during the 10 weeks of weight training for healthy 20 male college students.
The experimental group took 100mg of DHEA and performed weight training but the control group did weight training only.
The results of this study are as follows: the change in testosterone was greater in the experimental group than in the control group. Regarding blood lipid, the significant changes in total cholesterol were observed in both group but there were no statistic differences between two groups. There were no significant differences between two groups in HDL-C, as well. The significant changes in LDL-C were observed in both groups. However, there were no statistic differences between two groups.
the changes of testosterone and fat free mass were greater in the experimental group than in the control group whereas no significant changes in total cholesterol, HDL-C, LDL-C, were observed in both groups. Thus, the result shows that the intake of DHEA with weight training potentiates the positive effect on improvements of muscle, increasing testosterone and the change of fat free mass.
Keywords: DHEA, testosterone, HDL-C, LDL-C
