The study was conducted on a sample of 23 working age female subjects of average age 38. 3 ± 4.45 years from Pancevo classified by body mass index (BMI≥25 kg/m2). Their blood and body composition was measured during the initial and final measuring. The experimental factor involved directed low intensity aerobic training for a period of eight weeks. The aim of the study was to determine the effect of the transformation process and relation of biochemical parameters at the initial and final body composition variables assessment measuring. The research results obtained by Paired-Samples T test revealed statistically significant differences in the following variables: Body Weight, Body Fat Mass, BMI, Body Fat Percent, Visceral Fat, Blood Glucose, LDL and HDLD in favor of final measuring. Regression analysis showed that the system of biochemical parameters determine BMI in a small extent, Visceral Fat and Body Fat Mass (from 16% to 30% at the initial measuring and from 18% to 32.8% at the final measuring) and that the predictor system was significantly associated in neither of the cases. Biochemical parameters for the most part were associated with nutritional status at the final measuring, while this percentage was lowest in the Visceral Fat criteria at the initial measuring. On the final measuring the share of biochemical parameters the Body Fat Mass was reduced, while BMI and Visceral Fat had been slightly increased. The authors recommend moderate intensity training as an effective way to improve the physical and biochemical parameters of the health preservation of and weight reduction.
