Brief Summary:
The investigators hypothesize that aerobic exercise training associated with respiratory muscle training will cause additional benefits compared to isolated exercise training or respiratory training in chronic heart failure patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure Other: Exercise training Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The investigators hypothesize that aerobic exercise training associated with respiratory muscle training will cause additional benefits in the autonomic control and respiratory function compared to isolated exercise training or respiratory training in chronic heart failure patients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
No Intervention: Control Group
No exercise group (sedentary)
Experimental: Aerobic Exercise Training
Group undergoing isolate aerobic exercise training 3 times/week, during 40 minutes, for 04 mouths
Other: Exercise training
The heart failure patients are subjected to differents protocols of physical training

Experimental: Inspiratory Muscle Training
Group undergoing isolate inspiratory muscle training 7 times/week, during 30 minutes, for 04 mouths
Other: Exercise training
The heart failure patients are subjected to differents protocols of physical training

Experimental: Aerobic+Inspiratory Muscle Training
Group undergoing aerobic exercise training (3 times/week during 40 minutes) associate inspiratory muscle training (7 times/week during 30 minutes) for 04 mounths
Other: Exercise training
The heart failure patients are subjected to differents protocols of physical training




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Autonomic control [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Exercise training associated with inspiratory muscle training will reduce sympathetic nerve activity.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Functional Capacity [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Exercise training associated with inspiratory muscle training will improve peak oxygen consumption

  2. Quality of life [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Exercise training associated with inspiratory muscle training will improve quality of life

  3. Blood inflammatory markers [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Exercise training associated with inspiratory muscle training will reduces blood inflammatory markers

  4. Muscular evaluation [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Exercise training associated with inspiratory muscle training will increase skeletal muscle strength

  5. Respiratoy muscle function [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Exercise training associated with inspiratory muscle training will increase inspitarory muscle strength and endurance.
