Using the following equation, the HRR method, otherwise known as the Karvonen method,should be employed to determine the target heart rate for the ill or elderly patient: Target HR =(220 - age - resting heart rate × % intensity selected) + resting HR.ProgressionProgression must be a part of an exercise program to ensure continued results. With endurancetraining, progression can occur by increasing the duration or the intensity. Several factorscontribute to the optimal rate of progression; current activity levels, exercise goals, age, andphysiologic limitations should be considered. Most importantly, a rate of progression should beused that results in long-term participation. Being too aggressive with progression can lead toincreased dropout rates as a result of injuries and/or perceived excessive discomfort.

This type of exercise generally exists in 3forms: isotonic, isometric, and isokinetic.Resistance training has been shown to bring about favorable changes in risk factors for coronaryartery disease, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus, and cancer. For example, resistance training hasbeen proven to lower systolic blood pressure, increase bone mineral density, increasemechanisms involved with blood glucose metabolism (glucose tolerance and insulin resistance),and increase bowel transit time, which decreases the risk of colon cancer in healthy men andwomen who are middle-aged or older. Back pain and work-related back injuries also have beenshown to decrease with resistance training.Isotonic exerciseIsotonic exercise consists of dynamic exercise combining a constant load (the amount of weightused) with uncontrolled speed of movement. Movement is through a range as the muscleshortens or lengthens. This type of exercise uses free weights and machines; it is what mostpeople envision when they think of resistance training. DeLorme and Zinovieff were 2 of thefirst proponents of isotonic exercise.[4, 5]DeLorme recommended gradually building up to the 10 repetition maximum (RM; the maximumamount of weight lifted with correct technique for 10 repetitions) for each exercise withpercentages of the 10 RM (ie, 50%, 75%, and then 100%). In contrast, Zinovieff's method, calledthe Oxford technique, starts at 10 RM and works down by a certain percentage (ie, 100%, 75%,and then 50%).

Today, reaching the RM is still acrucial part of a resistance training program. More variables to a resistance training programexist, as described below.
