Exercise training programs and detraining in older women
Keywords:Functional tests, Hemodynamic profile, Anthropometric profile
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of exercise training programs and detraining. Fifty one aged women participated in two supervised exercise programs: a group of land-based exercise and a group of land-based exercise plus aquatic exercise, both being evaluated at the baseline after nine months of intervention and three months of detraining. After intervention, both groups had decreased blood pressure and improved resistance of the lower and upper limbs. After a detraining period, both groups showed significant increase in blood pressure while resistance of lower and upper limbs, agility and aerobic capacity had a significant decrease.
