Graded Exercise

2 posts in this topic

I have trouble exercising partly because I get drained so quickly but also because exercise usually hurts so much because I have loose ligaments.  I was talking to my physical therapist about how quickly I get tired and have muscle weakness and he suggested graded exercise.

 

Has anybody tried this or know anything about it?

Starting slooowly and working your way up gradually is a great way to avoid injury. Anything is better than nothing. Gradually increasing over time allows your body to adjust. The build up is more of a mental commitment than a physical one.

 

Exercise has great benefits on sleep and mood.
