The aim of the present study was to Compare the effects of two aerobic training programs (rope jumping and running) on physical factors in 10-12 years old male boys with intellectual disability. Thirty mentally retarded male students (age 10.81±0.96 years, height 141.67±7.94 cm, weight 36.22±5.16 kg) were recruited by random cluster from primary exceptional school and randomly were assigned into rope-jump training (n=10), running training (n=10), and control (n=10) groups. Initial measurements included the measurement of height, weight, body composition, cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular endurance, flexibility and agility. After that, considering the groupings, subjects of the two experimental groups completed eight weeks of either rope-jumping or running. The mentioned above factors were measured again after 8 weeks of exercise program. The results indicate that rope-jumping and running have a significant positive impact on aerobic capacity, body composition, muscular endurance, flexibility and agility in mentally retarded students between 10 to 12 years of age whereas they have no significant impact on anaerobic capacity in students (p>0.05). In addition, there were no significant difference between rope-jumping and running on the components of physical fitness (p>0.05). According to the results it seems that due to lack of sports outdoor in homes and schools, rope-jump training can be a good alternative rather than running in order to increase health-related physical fitness in students with intellectual impairment, and with safety consideration, to have health benefits for them.

Keywords: Endurance training, health, physical fitness, rope-jumping, mental retard.
