Objective: Combined training has been recommended as an effective rehabilitation intervention to improve health in elderly. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of sequence order of combined training (resistance and endurance) on health related quality of life in older women.

Methods: In this quasi-experimental research, 40 retired elderly women of education (Age: 60.34±0.82 years old, High: 155±0.01 cm, Weight: 71.72±1.89 kg and BMI: 29.45±0.63 kg/m2) were selected purposely and placed randomly into four groups: endurance + strength (E+S) (n=9), strength + endurance (S+E) (n=10), circulation combined (CI) (n=12) and control (n=9) groups. Health related quality of life of subjects was measured before and after training course by SF-36 Health Survey questionnaire. Training programs were done for eight weeks and 3 days a week. Within-group differences were analyzed by paired samples t-test and the between-group differences were analyzed by one-way ANOVA.

Results: The results showed that after 8 weeks of combined training, the CI group experienced a significant increase in dimension of bodily pain (p=0.025). In between-group differences there was a significant difference in dimension of physical pain between the CI and Control group (p=0.011). S+E group had a significant increase in general health (p=0.036).

Conclusion: According to the results, combination training with the order of S+E can improve the general health dimension of health related quality of life in older people.
