Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
physical training Behavioral: physical training
intensive cardiac rehabilitation program

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. to evaluate the effective prevalence of glucose metabolism alterations in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease and stable chronic heart failure, without previous diagnosis of diabetes mellitus

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. to evaluate the potential beneficial effect of physical training on the glycometabolic state
