Abstract: Considering the lack of adequate information about the effect of aerobic and anaerobic exercises with drinking green tea on Malondialdehyde, the current study is aimed to investigate the effect ofan aerobic and anaerobic selected exercises (resistance) course with drinking green tea on Malondialdehyde enzyme in male athletes 20-35 years old. 60 male athletes (with average age of 26.30 and standard deviation 10.73 and average weight 71.68 and standard deviation 12.47) were selected and divided into 6 groups randomly: group aerobic exercise with green tea, group aerobic exercise, group anaerobic exercise (resistance) with green tea, group anaerobic exercise (resistance), group only green tea and group they only did their own exercises (control). All six groups implemented 8-week protocol that included exercises in two types of cardio exercises (aerobic exercise) with intensity of 65-75% of maximum heart rate and anaerobic exercises (resistance) that worked with weights by 60-70% of one repetition maximum. The experimental group received green tea three days a week at a rate of 200 mL. Before doing the exercises and 8 weeks after the last session of exercise program, blood samples were taken from the participants while they were fasting. Inferential statistics were used for unilateral variance analysis in addition to that Tukey post hoc test was used in all hypotheses in significant level of (p = 0/05). The rate of rest MDA changes didn’t have significant difference in all six research groups. Changes in all 6 groups were increasing MDA but they didn’t have significant difference statistically. Despite in two groups of aerobic exercise with green tea and resistance exercise with more tea MDA increased so results show that aerobic exercise, anaerobic exercise, aerobic and anaerobic exercise with green tea and green tea don’t have significant effect on MDA and their effect isn’t different. Therefore, the results showed that doing aerobic exercises, anaerobic ones, aerobic and anaerobic with green tea may increase MDA.
