Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess whether a lesson of physical activity based on a traditional Tunisian game could be a useful tool for soliciting the cardiovascular system in children. Methods: nineteen pre-pubertal were randomly performed in different days, two types of lessons (intermittent running mode vs. traditional Tunisian game “Raqassa”) lasting 12-min each. Heart Rate was continuously recorded during both lessons, while ratings of perceived exertion and Feeling values were recorded. Results: the mean Heart Rate value during traditional game was significantly higher than during intermittent exercise (p<0.05). Conversely, the perceived exertion score was significantly higher after intermittent exercise than traditional exercise game (p<0.05) showing that the higher cardiovascular strain of the game was perceived ‘’lighter’’ than the run. Simultaneously, the Feeling was significantly higher after traditional game than intermittent exercise (p<0.001) showing a higher satisfaction from playing with respect to running. Conclusions: exercise based on the ‘’Raqassa’’ traditional game could be used in pre-pubertal children as an alternative or as an additional method for suitable cardiovascular solicitation during physical education lessons in children with lower perceived exertion and better feeling than intermittent running.
