Endurance Training – Lower Limb

Mode | Intensity | Duration | Frequency | Type
  • The minimum suggested duration for a lower limb endurance exercise session is 30 minutes (e.g. 30 minutes of walking or cycling).
  • If a patient is very debilitated, the duration of the initial exercise sessions can be shortened (e.g. to 10 minutes).  The duration should be built up to 30 minutes during the first two weeks of the program.
  • If a stationary cycle is available, the program can be split into 15 minutes of cycling and 15 minutes of walking.

Examples of exercise prescriptions for patients with varying degrees of disease severity and disability are available.

Please refer to the Exercise Training section for further details on exercise prescription.
