A total of 240 hypertensive subjects aged 40-69 years (including 126 patients complicated with diabetes) will be included in a few communities in Beijing, and will be divided into 3 groups according to the individual wishes of the subjects: walking group(n=80, including 42 patients complicated with diabetes), Chinese square dancing group(n=80, including 42 patients complicated with diabetes) and control group(n=80, including 42 patients complicated with diabetes). All exercise sessions will be supervised and subject's exercise implementation process will be managed with intelligent equipment. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of different training programs in the real world.

The demographics data, physical activity questionnaires, blood pressure, blood glucose, blood lipids, height, weight and physical fitness (cardiorespiratory fitness,muscle strength, muscle endurance, flexibility, body composition)will be measured before and after 3-month exercise training .The adverse reactions in the implementation of the interventions will be recorded. The primary outcomes are blood pressure and blood glucose.


The global burden of disease study shows that unreasonable diets and physical inactivity are the largest health risks facing the world today. In recent years, foreign and domestic scholars have gradually introduced the concept of "Exercise is Medicine " guide the the public exercise scientifically. However, under the special cultural background of China, it is urgent to answer how to help the public to realize reasonable scientific exercise, how to choose the popular exercise mode and whether the exercise mode is scientific and effective.

Previous meta-analysis studies on the improvement of blood pressure and blood glucose by walking have been published, but few studies on Chinese square dancing have been conducted. Previous studies on whether Chinese square dancing was scientific and effective were mostly small sample population studies carried out by Chinese scholars. The research results were of large heterogeneity, and the research design lacked reasonable consideration.

This study intends to select two common exercise mode for scientific evaluation, one is walking and the other is Chinese square dancing. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two common types of exercise (walking and Chinese square dancing) in Chinese patients with hypertension and patients with hypertension complicated with diabetes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

A distribution in which a variable is distributed like the sum of the squares of any given independent random variable, each of which has a normal distribution with mean of zero and variance of one. The chi-square test is a statistical test based on comparison of a test statistic to a chi-square distribution. The oldest of these tests are used to detect whether two or more population distributions differ from one another.

Studies which start with the identification of persons with a disease of interest and a control (comparison, referent) group without the disease. The relationship of an attribute to the disease is examined by comparing diseased and non-diseased persons with regard to the frequency or levels of the attribute in each group.

The rate at which steps are made while walking.
