An exercise program should include: An aerobic program that involves walking, as this is the most relevant exercise for daily living. Other types of aerobic exercise can include cycling on an exercise bike or even using a rowing machine. You could use these exercises to add variety to your program or when you have difficulties with walking. A strength training program, which will keep your muscles strong and minimise some of the effects of having a chronic lung condition. Strength training should include exercises for your arms, torso and legs. Pelvic floor exercises are also very important as these can be weak due to persistent coughing.
