Table 2 Exercise Training Schedule

From: Aerobic exercise in obese diabetic patients with chronic kidney disease: a randomized and controlled pilot study

Weeks Light
(25-44% VO2 peak)
Moderate
(45-59% VO2 peak)
Hard
(60-84% VO2 peak)
Very Hard
(>85% VO2 peak)
1-3 20% (6 min) 60% (18 min) 20% (6 min) 0%
4-6 15% (6 min) 55% (22 min) 30% (12 min) 0%
  1. Percent time spent at a given exercise training intensity (% peak VO2) for exercise group (approximate minutes at each intensity are in parenthesis). Values expressed in the table are a percentage of the total workout time (e.g., 10 min of a 30 minute workout = 33%). Total exercise time begins at 30 minutes and increases by 5 minutes every two weeks until 40 minutes is achieved while supervised.
