ABSTRACT
Background: The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of an ergometric training program on the pregnancy outcome. Methods: Samples (90 pregnant) females were randomly selected in two experimental (No: 40) and control (No: 50) groups. In the experimental group, a training program for a period of 8 weeks (two sessions each week; each session consisted of 15-30 min) with an intensity of 50-60% of maximal heart rate was performed. Findings: Results showed no significant difference in pregnancy length, near birth neonate weight, 1st min APGAR, mechonial amniotic fluid and the type of feeding between experimental and control groups )p>0.05(.
