Example text

Current public health recommendations for exercise and physical activity emphasize the benefits of intermittent accumulation. But there are few studies that have assessed the effectiveness of intermittent bouts for weight loss. Early in the exercise process, patients performing intermittent exercise will not likely achieve 2000 calories per week expenditure (and this level is also often difficult for those who can perform continuous exercise). The duration, frequency, and intensity of exercise combine to determine total exercise volume and thus caloric expenditure.

Overall, at submaximal work rates, heart rate, blood pressure, and perceived exertion values will be reduced, requiring a progressive increase in absolute exercise work rate to maintain exercise intensity levels. In addition, the National Weight Control Registry shows that exercise is critical for prevention of weight regain (26). These data suggest that a large volume of exercise (80–90 min per day) needs to be performed each day to maintain weight loss. Resistance exercise training can utilize several different modes.

However, almost any exercise physiologist is knowledgeable of these routines and should be able to apply appropriately. Often, resistance training does not occur in phase 2 cardiac rehabilitation but rather in phase 3. However, there is no reason why a motivated individual who has adequately adapted to an aerobic exercise routine cannot perform resistance training during phase 2 cardiac rehabilitation. Resistance training should be limited or not performed in patients with unstable angina, within 6 weeks of bypass surgery, or with uncontrolled hypertension.
