We appreciate the considerations of Review In “Hemodynamic Response After Concurrent Cross Exercise In Hypertensive Women ”by Letieri at al. In answer, we point out:

  1. The objective of the present study was not to verify the concurrent effect, but to verify hypotensive effect and pressure reactivity after concurrent exercise crossed. The literature already has countless published works that study the isolated effects of aerobic exercise and resistance exercise. Thus we focus on the joint effect. In addition, the study verified the presence acute effect after exercise and not chronic effect resulting from physical training, in which the sample performed the exercise session and the control session.

  2. The 8 RM protocol is a protocol with internal and external validity and reliability, therefore, the exercise prescription met the intensity of 75% of 8 RM, used by Azevêdo et al., 2017. 11. Azevedo LM, Souza AC, Santos LES, Santos RM, Fernandes MOM, Almeida JA, Pardono E. Fractionated Concurrent Exercise throughout the Day Does Not Promote Acute Blood Pressure Benefits in Hypertensive Middle-aged Women. Frontiers in cardiovascular Medicine. 2017; 4(6):

  3. The intense term the treatment we gave to level 14, which is transitional and non-intermediate and that can be consulted in scale with ratio properties the Borg, 1982. 22. Borg GAV. Psychophysical bases of perceived exertion. Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. 1982; 14(5)377-81. In addition, it was the protocol adopted for prescription of intensity in aerobic exercise. As is indicated by the literature, people with arterial hypertension and medicated with beta-blockers have controlled heart rate rhythm demonstrated by Gascón et al., 1988, 33. Gascón JVG, Ros JO, Reig JF, Martinez MH, Siscar PB, Catala GE, Vidal FJ. Exercise Stress test in Young Hypertensive Patients. Response to Vasodilators (Prazosin) vs. Beta-Blocker (Atenolol) Agents. Clin Cardiol. 1988; 11(1): 24-34. therefore, to measure it without considering other parameters such as blood pressure can result in bias. We further affirm that in our methodological procedure we do not measure the cardiac frequency during aerobic exercise, we measure together with blood pressure at end of the concurrent exercise session.
