Background: the lifestyle adopted by most of the population has led to an increase in the rate of chronic degenerative diseases, among these diseases highlight the metabolic syndrome (MS). Despite the sedentary habit not be a criterion for determining the SM, is an important indicator of risk for disease development. Searches related to physical exercise has been conducted to clarify the effects of this practice in the relationship between health and disease, among which is the SM. Objective: analyze and compare the effects of two resistance training programs (conventional exercises vs. exercises with complex moving levers) on biological markers and lipid profile of MS. Materials and methods: the study will consist of 60 subjects of both sexes aged between 40 and 60 who have MS, and will be divided into three randomized groups of 20 subjects each, two training groups and a control. The groups will be subject to their respective training programs, which will be periodized for 12 weeks, totaling 30 sessions of training. The analytical study of the profiles of responses from groups in the follow-up evaluation of participants will be made on the model of repeated measures on independent groups, considering the technique of MANOVA (Multivariate Analyses of Variance), complemented with the construction of intervals of 95% simultaneous confidence Hotelling.
