AB  - BACKGROUND: Although some studies have reported significant improvements in
      physical function and strength after training programs on liver transplant (LT)
      recipients, there is a lack of knowledge on how it affects in static and dynamic 
      balance, being an important part of these participants' tasks development. The
      aim of the study was to determine the effects of a 6-month multicomponent circuit
      training program on static and dynamic balance in LT participants. METHODS:
      Fifty-four participants were randomized at 6 months after LT into 2 groups:
      exercise (EXER) group and control (CONTROL) group, with repeat testing at 6
      (baseline) and 12 months after LT. The intervention consisted of a multicomponent
      training, including balance, strength, endurance, and flexibility training, with 
      exercises arranged in a circuit setup and a moderate intensity with high
      perceived exertion. Training sessions were performed in the hospital facilities
      with qualified trainers. To determine differences over time between EXER and
      CONTROL, mixed-regression linear models with subject variable as random factor
      and variables of treatment duration, type, and interaction as predictors were
      used. RESULTS: The EXER group showed significant differences (P < 0.05) compared 
      with CONTROL in all variables of static and dynamic balance, hip strength (49%
      versus 13%), agility (-16% versus -1%), and flexibility (78% versus -26%).
      Adherence to the intervention was 94%, and 80% of the participants continued
      voluntarily training after the 6 months. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated
      that a multicomponent circuit training program at a moderate intensity with high 
      perceived exertion could reduce the probability of injuries because it improves
      balance on LT recipients.
