KNOWN AND UNKNOWN ASPECTS OF PRE

Progressive resistance exercise (PRE) is a method of increasing the ability of muscles to generate force.
KNOWN ASPECTS:
Systematic reviews on PRE and randomized trials FOUND PRE is highly applicable on major areas of physical therapy: cardiopulmonary, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, and gerontology. Across conditions, PRE was shown to improve the ability to generate force, with moderate to large effect sizes that may carry over into an improved ability to perform daily activities.
UNKNOWN ASPECTS:
1. The potential negative effects of PRE.
2. How to maximize carryover into everyday activities.
