We evaluated 114 men aged 35-55 years old, through a protocol on quality of life, and measurements of blood pressure
and heart rate. 37 men with a mean age of 48.5 years, mean overall blood pressure 15.7 mmHg x 9mmHg, and overall
average resting heart rate of 96 bpm were separated. Men who consumed red meat seven days a week twice a day (lunch and
dinner), smoked on average 15 cigarettes per day, sedentary and consumed alcoholic beverages on average of 5 times a week
were considered stressed and spent on average 2.5 hours inside the car to go to work (round trip). A program was proposed to
them for a moderate physical activity, which had, one hour of class for three times in a week with the total of three hours per
week. It was also suggested that they seek out other activities of the program. The prescription of physical activity was: Monday
walk, Wednesday individual dance movements with free and Thursday free exercises for a period of four months. Physical
activities were monitored with measurements of heart rate and blood pressure. During the activities the maximum heart rate
was maintained between 60-75% (102-127 bpm). We also measured the satisfaction of physical activities. After 04 months they
were re-evaluated considering the same variables.
28 subjects had blood pressure with reduced overall average of 128 mmHg x 80 mmHg and heart rate with an average
of 88 bpm and 09 subjects with an average of 131mmHg x 84mmHg and an overall average heart rate of 91bpm.
We can consider that physical activity with exercise therapy and the change in lifestyle act in decreasing the blood
pressure and heart rate
