About

This project aims to verify the chronic effect of Mat Pilates exercise on climacteric symptoms, ambulatory blood pressure responses, lipid and glucose profile and pro and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant markers in postmenopausal normotensive and hypertensive women. All volunteers received the same intervention.

Full description

The Pilates program was performed three times a week for 12 weeks. Initially a familiarization was made regarding the principles of the method. All volunteers underwent 24-hour blood pressure assessment using ambulatory blood pressure measurement (ABPM) and venous blood samples were collected from fasting, saliva and questionnaires before and after the Pilates training period.

Description:
The Mat Pilates session was held lasting 50 minutes of exercises with the first 5 minutes heating and in each exercise performing 10 repetitions with 45 seconds of rest between one exercise and another. For practice, are used only mats, and alternative devices such as the Swiss ball and the flexible ring, as well as body weight and the force of gravity as resistance factors and Borg's subjective perception of effort scale for intensity parameters. The 20 exercises were chosen through the classic exercises thus classified by the creator of the Joseph Pilates method.During the sessions, volunteers were instructed on correct breathing without performing the valsalva maneuver.
