Abstract Resume

Background: Aging is increasing in Brazil as well as obesity. Different strategies have been used in order to minimize the consequences of these occurrences. This research aimed to
study the effects of concurrent training (resistance training and aerobic in the same session) on obese post-menopausal women's balance and strength, participants of an interdisciplinary health
program.


Methods: Two groups were formed, Training Group – TG (n=19, and mean age of 57,42 years) and Control Group - CG (n= 05, and mean age of 58 years) to fulfill 12 weeks of
interdisciplinary intervention (Physical Education, Nutrition and Psychology), being the only difference the concurrent training in Training Group. The concurrent training consisted in 3 sessions per
week with 1 hour of duration. The nutritional orientation and psychological attendance occurred fortnightly with 1 hour per session. Evaluations were made in anthropometry, body composition, balance
and strength. Average and standard deviation were calculated as well as the statistic differences among variables, significance level was set at 5%.


Results: By the end of the intervention there were significant increases to Training Group at the knee articulation strength (flexion at 60°/s, extension and flexion at 300°/s) and
significant decrease at Body Mass Index and in the median frequency Anteroposterior of the open eyed semitandem stand (balance). The Control Group increased significantly the waist circumference and
hip-to-waist ratio.


Conclusions: The concurrent training within an interdisciplinary intervention shows benefits on balance, but mainly in the variables of muscular strength in obese post-menopausal
women.
