  This study was carried out to assess the lipid pattern in gymnasts of the Jordan National Team. Twelve athletes represent the National gymnastic team (4 males and 8 females, mean age 18±1 year) were included in this study. The training period for them is not less eight years during which they trained 18 hours weekly at least. A group of healthy males and females matched for age and gender was included as control group (n = 20). No subject had evidences of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and blood pressure .The body mass index (BMI) of the females was significantly (p<0.5) lower than that of the control (22.5±3.21, 18.9±0.9 respectively). It was found that the majority of the males had lower total cholesterol, triglycerides, and great decreasing in LDL cholesterol and significantly (p<0.5) raising in HDL cholesterol, (164.3±19.8, 85.9±34.3, 49.8±6.5, 80.4±30.8 respectively) comparing to the control group (186.6±20.7, 171.6±34.3, 44.5±5.7, 127.2±18.2 respectively). In females a similar fashion of lipid profile was also found with a great reduction in LDL-C level .Our result suggest that gymnastics exercise affect blood cholesterol and other lipids in a positive way, by regulating the metabolism of all lipids in the blood and increasing fat oxidation during training results in an adaptive mechanism for body weight maintenance. Also increasing HDL-C level in males and females gymnasts has protective value against cardiovascular diseases such as ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction by carrying cholesterol from the body's tissues and remove cholesterol from atheroma withinarteries and transport it back to the liver for excretion or re-utilization.

  Owing to considerable physical, endocrinological and metabolic adaptations, the analysis of biochemical data in elite and top-class athletes requires caution. With the aim to identify metabolic and biochemical adaptations to particular lifestyle conditions such as regular and strenuous physical exercise researchers measured the concentration of liver enzymes, bilirubin and serum albumin in Jordanian top athletes. A healthy liver is essential to optimum performance by athletes. Good liver function is required to burn fat, build muscle and provide energy. Sixty Jordanian first class athletes (34 males and 26 females, mean age 19.8±2 years with training experience of at least 5 years and with a minimal training load of 18 training hours per week participated in competitive different sports chosen in the study. Group of healthy male and female (control group), matched for age and gender was also included (n = 60). No subject revealed evidences of cardiovascular disease, diabetes (fasting glucose <7 mmol L-1) or hypertension (blood pressure <130/80 mm Hg) when tested by specialized physicians. The levels of AST, ALT and ALP for evaluation the liver functions in athletes in different groups were measured 15-18 h rest and 12 h fasting using commercial analytical kits. The results showed a significant differences (p<0.5) were observed between experimental and control group for AST (34.18±13.23 and 26.19±7.42 U L-1, respectively) for ALT (28.47±8.43 and 17.38±10.83 U L-1, respectively) and for ALP (127.85±67.54 and 83.49±19.45 U L-1, respectively). The concentration of serum albumin was decreased in athletes but the difference did not reach statistical significance (controls: 4.82± 0.37 g L-1; athletes: 4.72±0.27 g L-1). No effect of endurance exercise on serum bilirubin in healthy athletes. Researchers concluded that the most abnormalities observed on routine biochemical screening in elite Jordanian athletes are of no clinical significance.
