Progressive Resistance Exercise (PRE):

Exercise that gradually increases in resistance and in repetitions.

PRE is usually prescribed for reeducation of muscles and strengthening. Weights, rubber bands, and body weight can be used as resistance.

Incorporating a progressive resistance exercise (PRE) program into your routine can be incredibly beneficial for building strength and muscle tone. By gradually increasing the resistance, whether through weights, rubber bands, or simply using your own body weight, you can challenge your muscles to adapt and grow stronger over time.


Progressive Approach for Optimal Results

For optimal results, it’s important to start with a weight or resistance level that is manageable for you, and then slowly increase the intensity as your muscles become accustomed to the exercises. This gradual progression not only helps prevent injury but also ensures that you continue to see improvements in strength and muscle development.
