An exercise prescription for weight management is an individually tailored weight and physical activity programme that will help to optimise the health and well-being of an individual.
An exercise prescription is for any individual who either wants to manage their long-term illness or who just wishes to improve their habits by:
- improving nutrition
- learning how to optimise exercise
- making other lifestyle changes
A specific individualised exercise prescription uses anthropometric measurements. These include:
- body composition statistics
- blood pressure
- baseline heart rate
A nutrition prescription is also issued to support a healthier lifestyle or to optimise performance, as required.
This eventually stimulates the body to make new fibres, which are laid down within the substance of ligaments. This has the effect of thickening and strengthening them.
How long does the prescription take to work?
Results are extremely variable and is dependent on several factors. Your consultant will be able to advise further.
