Abstract: 

Introduction: Prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is increasing in the world. Modernization and reduction of physical activity in present century and also controversial results about relationship between work-related physical activity and CVD, lead to investigate the relationship between work-related physical activity and CVD.
Methods: This cross-sectional study is based on data from first phase of Isfahan healthy heart program in 2000. 12514 people were selected by randomized cluster sampling from Najaf-Abad, Isfahan and Arak. Demographic data and history of CVD and stroke was collected using a standard questionnaire and physical activity was measured using Baecke questionnaire in MET-hour/week. Data was analyzed by SPSS at level of 0.05 by using linear regression after adjusting for confounding variables.
Results: Work-related physical activity was related to stroke inversely (P<0.04) but it was not related to CVD. Leisure-time physical activity was not related to stroke nor CVD significantly in this study.
Conclusion: We found a negative relationship between work-related physical activity and stroke only. It seems that were studies are needed in different types of job subgroups.
