Better exercise for lung disease patients : In a study of 98 patients with severe chronic obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) – a condition that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis --- those who did interval training (alternating 20 to 40 second bouts of high and low intensity exercise) were nearly twice as likely to tolerate exercise as those who performed continuous, high intensity exercise. If you have COPD: Ask your doctor if interval training is an option for you. Milo A. Puhan, MD, PhD, department of medicine, Horten Centre, University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland. “Bottom Line Health” May 2008.
The Perfect Exercise : Walking is ideal, but for many people, cycling may be even better because it is an excellent choice if you are overweight or have back problems or arthritis. Start with a stationary bike. A beginner can start by pedaling for ten minutes at a very low resistance. Next, increase your workouts by five minutes per week until you can ride comfortably for 30 minutes uninterrupted. Each time start with five to ten minutes of easy cycling and then gradually increase resistance. A fitness center can suggest a plan to get the best from your work out. After you reach an intermediate level of stationary cycling, you'll be ready to bike outdoors. Never ride a bike without a helmet and check with your physician before starting a vigorous exercise program. Brief summary from: “Bottom Line Health, May 2008
