Background: Every day that goes by the population is more concerned with the welfare, thus seeking sports activities to improve physical and mental performance, understanding
that doing physical activity has become a great option for those who need to change habits because of health. Patients with diseases began attending the academies, seeking thereby control problems in
addition to the pharmacological means, of all diseases affecting elderly women, the most common is type II diabetes is associated with metabolic diseases damaging other organs throughout their
development. Increasingly, scientific evidence shows that there is genetic susceptibility for someone to have a higher potential to develop diabetes, no longer only associated with excessive
consumption of sugar, this case study focuses on the analysis of physical assessments through strength training with the linear periodization of an old 51 years old with diabetes type II.
Methods:Data were collected at the academy of Claretiano University Center of Batatais for 9 months of the same, using resistance training with linear periodization.
Results: In the first evaluation voluntary started with a total fat percentage of 31.4%, after three months its percentage was 31% in the last evaluation the percentage increased to
35.9%, also having decreased flexibility in the range test, and a significant increase in fat weight, lean weight and ideal weight by increasing only 200g in the current weight, it is noteworthy that
there was no control over the nutritional aspects and the daily dose of insulin ranged from 0.3 to 0.6 U / kg.
Conclusions: Our genetic map shows that we were not created to consume sugar and with the addition of several genetic factors all people are willing to develop type II diabetes, in
case of the patient, however there were losses or favorable gains in anthropometric measurements, there was also increasing student of fat percentage may have influence as the fact that it has type II
diabetes condition which implies the reduction of metabolism and may lead to the results mentioned above.
