The present study was undertaken with an objective to frame out the lipid profile of Indian Women Boxers. Women boxing is a newly recognized game and no work has been reported on elite female boxers in India till date. The study was based on a sample of 45 women boxers (age 17 ~ 24 years) attending Senior National Women Boxing Camp at Sports Authority of India. Each subject was evaluated for Lipid Profile variables at the beginning and end of the six weeks training camp. Fasting blood samples were taken from the antecubital vein by venipuncture. Before the samples drawn the subjects were asked to take rest for ten minutes. The blood sample was analyzed by HITACHI UV-2000 spectrophotometer (Japan). Standard techniques and procedures were followed for all the estimation. Volume and intensity of different components of training was measured by observational and physiological methods. Data were subjected to statistical treatment like mean and standard deviation. Test of significance't' - test (for paired sample) was applied to asses the difference in pre & post-test. Results reveal that mean (+/-SD) Cholesterol, Triglyceride, LDL, HDL - Cholesterol and Cholesterol / HDL Cholesterol ratio was 144.7 +/- 3.6 mg%, 59.7 +/- 17.5 mg% 81.4 +/- 21.1 mg% 51.3 +/- 8.2 mg% and 2.8 +/- 0.5 respectively as found in the pre-test. Significant difference (P < 0.01) was observed in Cholesterol, LDL-Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol level in the post-test. The study concludes that women who practice sport of boxing on regular basis have a favorable lipid profile. A significant change in lipid profile of the boxers was observed after 6 weeks' training program.
