Our exercise prescription is tailored to each patient. Following a full holistic assessment the exercise specialist will devise a suitable programme for the patient. We use two forms of exercise training principles:
RE-HIIT: This type of aerobic training is based on HIIT training and involves short periods of high intensity and effort interspersed with lower intensity exercises. The patients training zones are carefully calculated by the exercise specialists to make sure they are working at a suitable level.
Progressive/Continuous This type of aerobic training sees the patient taken through progressive training zones, increasing as fitness increases. Again, training zones are carefully calculated by the exercise specialists
We see resistance training as of equal importance for patients and all programmes will include some resistance training. It will target the main large muscle groups in the lower and upper body, and making sure these muscles are strong will help you after surgery, for example when getting out of bed or up from a chair.
