- manovacuometry [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Evaluates indirectly respiratory muscle strength.
- spirometry [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Assesses lung function
- quality of life [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Assesses the influence of hypertension on the quality of life of target
- functional capacity [ Designated as safety issue: No ]assesses the cardiopulmonary capacity at sub-maximal
- IPAQ [ Designated as safety issue: No ]assesses the level of physical activity

|Study Completion Date:||November 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||October 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Held inspiratory muscle strengthening for 5 weeks with Threshold, charging 30% of maximal inspiratory pressure, 7 days a week, one supervised and unsupervised 6.
The load adjustment was done weekly by a single examiner.
It is a respiratory muscle training using the Threshold for 5 weeks, with a load of 30% of maximal inspiratory pressure obtained in manometer for 30 minutes daily. Furthermore, the assessment includes: test 6-minute walk, the quality of life questionnaire, MINICHAL, the IPAQ short version, manometer and spirometry.
