Material and Methods: Tested the complete exercise of Health Qigong·Yi Jin Jing and the exercise time, exercise frequency and exercise intensity of each style. Total 120 people were randomly divided into groups: 66 in the experimental group (EG) and 54 in the control group (CG). At the same time, basic Chinese medicine for sub-healthy people syndrome epidemiological investigation, master the basic conditions of common chronic diseases, with cervical spondylosis, constipation, gastritis, insomnia, and lumbar muscle strain as the main observation contents. According to the chronic disease status of the EG, 6 exercise prescriptions were formulated. On the basis of the exercises, precise exercises were carried out; the CG only practiced the whole set of exercises, and underwent 12 months of experimental observation and statistical analysis.
Results: There was no significant difference in the three indicators of age, height, and weight between the two groups of subjects. Through the test, 4 obvious peaks occurred within 13 minutes and 10 seconds, and the heart rate (HR) trend gradually changed from low to high. The lowest HR was 68 beats per minute, the highest heart rate was 107 beats per minute, and the average HR was 92 beats per minute.
