||It appears that little consistent information is available on medical interventions and the use of appropriate intensity and exercise mode to improve physiological and psychological menopause complications. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of eight weeks of low, moderate and high intensity TRX training on hot flashes, mood, fat percentage and muscular endurance of postmenopausal women. Forty non-athletic postmenopausal healthy women participated in the study and were randomly and equally divided into four groups: (1) control, (2) low-intensity TRX training (LI TRX) (40û55% HHR), (3) moderate-intensity TRX training (MI TRX) (55-70 HHR), and (4) high-intensity TRX training (HI TRX) (70-85 HHR). The research variables were measured 48 h before and after the intervention. The experimental groups performed their own training program for 8 weeks, 3 sessions per week, and 60min each session. Symptoms of hot flashes, mood, fat percentage, and muscular endurance in the experimental groups significantly improved compared to the control group (P ≤ 0.05). A decrease in fat percentage was observed in the MI TRX group compared to other training groups (P = 0.045). Adaptation to regular exercise training reduced menopausal symptoms. There was no significant difference between using different intensity of exercise. Probably due to the physiological and psychological aspects of menopause, the most important factor in improving menopausal symptoms is participating in exercise and the frequency of exercise training. Also, TRX can be used as a safe method in different intensities in this group of women|
