Resistive training safety and assessment guidelines for cardiac and coronary prone patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The past few years have seen increased use of resistive training programs for cardiac and coronary prone individuals. There is growing evidence that using moderate resistance with frequent repetitions is safe and beneficial. This review provides guidelines for selection and assessment of patients for resistive training programs. For the most part, the criteria for participation in resistive training are the same as those used for the more traditional cardiac and high risk exercise programs.
