Resumo: Purpose: to assess in chronic heart disease individuals the effects of exercise training on fibrinogen. Methods: Sixty-three individuals participated in this quasi-experimental controlled and longitudinal study: 37 from exercise group (EG) (9 males and 28 females - 64, 57 ± 6,64 years) and 26 from control group (CG) (6 males and 20 females - 68, 15 ± 8,54 years). The EG was subjected to a 12-months aerobic and resistance exercise-training programme, whereas the CG did not. Data were collected before and after the intervention program: fibrinogen, body composition variables [Weight, height, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC) and body fat mass (BFM)] and functional physical fitness variables (6 min walk test). Results: There were no significant differences between plasma fibrinogen baseline and final values (p= 0,421 for EG and p= 0,110 for CG) in both groups. Nevertheless, the percentage of change in fibrinogen was statistically different in both groups (EG: -1.30±13.01 and CG: 10.50±25.64, p=0.049). The EG significantly decrease WC (p=0,000) and increase cardiorespiratory fitness (p=0,000). However, CG increase BMI, WC and %BFM (p≤0,001) and decrease cardiorespiratory fitness (p=0,000). Conclusions: Exercise-training seems to have a potentially anti-thrombotic effect, preventing an increase in plasma fibrinogen levels.
