Aim and Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of eight weeks of aerobic exercise on cognitive and metacognitive abilities among inactive elder men. Methods and Materials: This was a semi-experimental study with pretest, posttest, and control group, in which 40 inactive men volunteers aged more than 60 years, divided randomly into two groups of experiment and control. The Mini-Mental State Examination and Meta-Cognitive Questionnaire-30 were used to assess cognitive and meta-cognitive abilities. Experimental protocol was performing aerobic activities for eight weeks, three sessions in a week, 60 minutes each session at 50 to 70 percent of maximum heart rate intensity. Findings: The experiment and control groups were significantly different in posttest in terms of inhibitory control and selective attention, planning, constant attention, cognitive flexibility, overall level of cognitive abilities, cognitive uncertainty, and cognitive self-awareness (P < 0.050 for all). Conclusions: Aerobic training interventions for eight weeks could be effective to improve some cognitive and metacognitive abilities among inactive elder men.
