Effectiveness of Aerobic Exercise vs. Circuit Training for Fibromyalgia

Editor's comment:  This study compares the use of aerobic exercise vs. circuit training as a treatment for fibromyalgia.  Aerobic exercise is typically moderate in intensity, is performed over a long period of time, and maintains an increased heart rate.  Circuit training consists of several short bursts (30 seconds to 5 minutes) of resistance exercise, sometimes alternating with an aerobic activity.  Usually participants rotate through a series of “stations.”  Each station features a unique exercise that targets a different muscle group.

Effects of two different training methods in women with fibromyalgia syndrome.

By Déborah de Araújo Fariasa, et al.

Abstract:

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects generated by the methods of training in women with fibromyalgia.

Two methods were applied-aerobic training (TA) and circuit training (TCIRC) - and their effects were compared on the quality of life of patients through diagnostic tests for fibromyalgia (questionnaire on the impact of fibromyalgia, visual scale of pain), development of aerobic capacity (test time, VO2max, and HRmax), and strength (15RM test).

  • With the analysis performed in the pre- and post-training periods, it was found that in diagnosis of fibromyalgia the TCIRC had a greater development than the TA when pre- and post-test evolution were compared.

  • In 6 weeks, however, the TA had better results than the TCIRC in aerobic capacity, considering the duration of the training period.

  • In the variable strength development, as expected, the TCIRC showed a higher evolution.

Thus, it was concluded that circuit training can be an alternative form of treatment of fibromyalgia.
