Abstract:
This study aims to determine the positive effects of Resistance Training in Chronic Heart Failure patients with inspiratory muscle weakness. 16 patients were enrolled, and underwent a 3 months training program. They were randomized into one of two groups consisting of Resistance Training or control group. Resistance Training was performed at 60% of 1 repetition maximum and each workout was composed of 3 sets of 10 repetitions, with at least 30 seconds of rest between sets. However, the control group did not participate in any exercise program. Pulmonary Function, Respiratory and Skeletal Muscles Function tests were performed as well as Quality of Life and Functional Capacity before and after training periods. Results have shown the beneficial effects of Resistance Training on the skeletal and respiratory muscle function, the functional capacity reflected by the six-minute walk test, the cardiac function, exercise performance, as well as on dyspnea and Quality of Life.
