With this research, we want to check body composition changes and variations in a group of adults after covering on foot 5 stages of the Primitive Way of Saint James, which runs through the Lugo province. This research involved 22 people between 21-48 years-old, 22.72% males and 77.27% females. Measurements were performed with the bio-impedance TANITA BC-418 at two different moments (before and after covering the Saint James` Way stages). Changes in different measured variables were analyzed and treated with the SPSS Statistics 20.0. Results show that, with this type of aerobic work and this duration, body composition of people involved had some changes. However, it is propose to increase work time and to vary intensity in future researches, with the intention of prove if more significant results are obtained.
