Study on little active and sedentary women: Comparison between protocols and prospects for admission in physical activity program
ABSTRACT
The aim of this work was to study little active and sedentary women through physical assessments using anthropometric measurements and exercise testing using the Naughton and Bruce protocols. Approximately 53 women were evaluated: Group 1—comprised of 17 completely sedentary women, aged 25-58 years, mean age 44.4 years, and Group 2—comprised of 36 women who answered doing physical activities once or twice a week (low active), aged 28-54 years, mean age 39.5 years. The results Group 1— high weight, body mass index showing overweight, heart rate above the target areas of your training, i.e., above 85% effort. Systolic blood pressure reached a high level in the seventh stage with 21 minutes of effort (177.3) and diastolic (92.7). Group 2—normal weight, body mass index recorded is considered thin, heart rate heart zones above the target of your training, i.e., above 85% effort also. Systolic blood pressure reached the highest level in phase 1 recovery (156.75). Diastolic blood pressure recorded pressure levels considered normal for the type of work done by the group. The values reported for the double product are considered normal for the type of effort made by both groups. Conclusion: The participants from group 1 are able to join physical activity programs from the results presented, specifically due to weight, BMI, heart rate and blood pressure. The participants from group 2 require more days of practice of physical activities and longer hours to improve the levels of heart rate and blood pressure.
