Aims:The 8-years of the imposed war between Iran and Iraq have led to irreparable consequences. These consequences not only affect the veteran, but also his wife as a carer of the veteran, causing various mental, physical and functional problems in these people. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of 8 weeks of home-based monitoring of combined exercises on abdominal obesity and Vo2max in veterans' wives of Mazandaran province.
Methods:In a semi-experimental design, 61 veteran spouse of Mazandaran province from the three provinces of the province were randomly divided into two groups of exercise (N = 40) and control (N = 21). The exercise protocol was run for 8 weeks and 6 sessions per week, with the principle of overload at home. Abdominal obesity indices (WHR, ABSI, CI) and VO2max were evaluated with standard methods at the beginning and the end of the training period. For data analysis, t independent and independent t-test was used.
Results:8 weeks of home exercise significantly(p<0/001) improved the ABSI, CI and VO2max indices compared to the control group. In contrast, the WHR values in the control group showed a non-significant (p=0/3)increase and in the training group showed a non-significant decrease
Conclusion: 8 weeks of home-based combination therapy by reducing abdominal obesity indices reduce the risk of cardiovascular risk factors and improve cardiovascular fitness and fitness of veterans' wives.
