The aim of this study was to assess the effects of deep-frying palm oil on a number of sperm and biochemical parameters with or without low (Ex1) and high-intensity (Ex2) swimming exercises. Mice (32 BALB/c type) were equally divided into four groups (control, palm oil, palm oil+Ex1 and palm oil+Ex2). The increase in epididymal fat weight in case of using palm oil was normalised in both exercises. The percentage of abnormal sperm increased in the palm oil and palm oil+Ex2 groups (p<0.01 and p<0.001 respectively) whilst there was not significant different from control group in palm oil+Ex1 groups. An increase in total cholesterol after palm oil was not reversed by either swimming exercises. The increased level of triglyceride in case of palm oil with heavy exercise was higher than the control (p>0.05), palm oil and palm oil +Ex1 groups (both p<0.05). The comparison to the control group showed that the increase in plasma MDA levels in palm oil and palm oil+Ex2 exercise groups were significantly higher (p<0.05 and p<0.01 respectively). In contrast, a significant increase (p<0.01) in testes MDA level after using palm oil was significantly reversed in both light and heavy exercise groups (p<0.001 and p<0.01 respectively).
