Physical activity is an effective way to prevent and treat cardiovascular risk factors, especially high blood pressure and high blood fat. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the Advantages and Disadvantages of interval circular training on blood pressure and lipid profile in adults with primary blood pressure. 30 adults, including Men and Women with primary blood pressure (ages 42.28±4.42 ) were selected and randomly assigned to one of the two groups: 12 participant in control and 18 participant in training group. The training group exercised interval circular training 3 times per week for 8 weeks. Blood samples were taken before the experimentation and after two months from all of the individuals. Anthropometric and systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic (DBP), mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and serum lipids were assessed. The gathered data were analyzed using paired and independent t-test with significant level P<0.05 using SPSS software. In training group compared to before the experiment, systolic, diastolic and mean arterial blood pressure was significantly decreased and significantly increased in HDL-C and total cholesterol and LDL-C and Triglycerid ratios (LDL / HDL) and (Tchol / HDL) were significantly decreased. In training group compared to non-training people, non-substantial decreases in blood pressure (P<0.05) and substantial changes in lipid profile was observed (P<0.05). Our findings indicates that interval circular training can lower and improve blood pressure and lipid profile in middle-aged adults with hypertension.
