An evaluation of training responses using self-regulation in a residential rehabilitation program

Hermes Ilarraza, Jonathan Myers, Willhart Kottman, Hans Rickli & Paul Dubach

abstract The efficacy of exercise training for patients with cardiovascular disease is well established. Given recent changes in reimbursement patterns for cardiac rehabilitation and therefore a greater need for self-monitoring, home programs, and the like, a need exists to determine the capability of patients to regulate their own exercise intensity and assess the efficacy of self-regulated exercise. This study assessed the training responses of a group instructed to train at an intensity they perceived as "somewhat hard," and compared their responses to standardized methods of exercise prescription.
