The elderly will be recruited, after meeting the inclusion criteria, will be submitted to data collection, all necessary assessments for the study and after 12 weeks, the same data will be collected, so that the elderly are self-control. After the second collection, the elderly will be randomized into two groups: the Muay Thai group and the functional training group. Both groups will train three times a week for 60 min and for 12 weeks. The training will be divided into 20 min of general exercises, 20 min of specific exercises and 20 min of fight simulation and/or play activities. At the end of the 12 weeks of intervention, evaluations and data collection will be performed again.

Description

Will be recruited through media resources at least 50 elderly people aged between 60 and 89 years.

Inclusion Criteria:

Being literate; Age between 60 and 89 years; Ability to perform moderate-intensity exercises determined by the American College Sports Medicine (ACSM) assessment questionnaire; Medical certificate stating that the elderly are able to exercise; Sign the informed consent form.

Exclusion Criteria:

Perform any other systematic practice of physical exercise, in addition to regular physical activity, such as walking; Present serious cardiovascular pathologies; Present serious neurological pathologies; Present use of crutches, walking sticks, walkers, wheelchairs or other similar utensils; Present self-report of locomotion difficulties to carry out the intervention practice.

These will have three moments of evaluations. Baseline, pre intervention (3 months) and post intervention (6 months) since the elderly will be controls themselves. They will perform anthropometric measurements, answer physical activity questionnaires, sedentary behavior, sleep quality, anxiety and depression, quality of life, cognition evaluation, body composition measurements, functional capacity, autonomic cardiac modulation, hemodynamics, flow and thickness of arteries, as well as flow-mediated dilatation. After the second-step measures (pre intervention 3 months), they will be randomized into two groups: Muay Thai and functional training. The functional training will be performed 3 times a week, for 12 weeks, during 60 minutes, being that will be divided into 20 min of general exercises, 20 min of specific exercises and 20 min of play activities. The activities will be carried out in a way adapted for the elderly. Will be carried out neuromotor control / coordination, balance, flexibility and static and dynamic stabilization. They will also have acceleration and deceleration activities, rotation and counter-rotation, extension and counter-extension, flexion and counter-flexion. The Muay Thai training will be performed 3 times a week, for 12 weeks, during 60 minutes, being that will be divided into 20 min of general exercises, 20 min of specific exercises (punches, kicks, knees, elbows, defenses and dodges) and 20 min of fight simulation and / or play activities.
