Introduction: exercise with oscillatory pole has been used in rehabilitation programs. This type of exercise works with the shoulder joint, activating muscles throughout this complex. Muscle activation induces cardiac responses, however, it is unclear how the heart rate variability behaves after exercise with oscillating pole. Objective: to investigate the acute effects of exercise with the oscillatory pole with one upper limb on heart rate variability (HRV). Method: the study will be conducted in young adults males 18-30 years of age. We will analyze the linear HRV indexes. The evaluation protocol will be based on the registration to stand for 10 minutes. Subsequently the subject held exercises with the oscillating pole. The exercises will be performed with a single member in three positions: 1) with the shoulder in 90 ° of flexion and oscillation of the pole in the transverse plane, 2) with shoulders at approximately 180 ° of flexion and oscillation of the pole in the frontal plane, parallel to soil and 3) with shoulders at approximately 90 ° of flexion and oscillation of the pole in the sagittal plane, perpendicular to the ground. The HRV will be assessed before and immediately after exercise in the following periods: 0-5 minutes, 5-10 minutes, 10-15 minutes, 15-20 minutes, 20-25 minutes and 25-30 minutes after exercise. (AU)
