List all the conditions that lead to COPD. List all the medications a client with COPD might be taking along with their effects on exercise. Then research what would be the correct intensity for someone with a mild to moderate level of COPD to exercise at. Design a comprehensive fitness program for someone with COPD. Then teach your self what it feels like to exercise at certain MET intensities such as 3 to 4 METs and 5 to 6 METs.

 

Causes of COPD:

Smoking is by far the most common cause, accounting for nearly 90% of COPD cases in the US. Second hand smoke is responsible as well. Air pollution and occupational pollutants account for some cases as well. Finally, a genetic disease, alpha-1-antitrypsin is an important, though rare, cause of COPD.

 

COPD medications:

bronchodilators like albuterol/salmeterol would be taken by metered dose inhalers

anticholinergics like atrovent may be taken by metered dose inhalers as well

methylxanthines like theophylline may be taken in addition

steroids such as prednisone by pill or inhaled steroids like flovent are used

 

 

A person with mid-moderate COPD should be able to carry out activities at 4-5 METS which include low impact exercise including:

 

Moderate Intensity Activities3 to 6
bicycling, stationary, 50 watts, very light effort3.0
calisthenics, home exercise, light or moderate effort, general3.5
bicycling, <10 mph (16 km/h), leisure, to work or for pleasure4.0
bicycling, stationary, 100 watts, light effort5.5

 

This should be done 3 times a week for 30 minutes with deep breathing and with assistance of inhaled bronchodilators as needed.

 

Exercising at 3-4 METs is like above, low intensity aerobic exercise, and 4-6 METS is high impact aerobic exercise and greater includes jumping robe and running.

You did not list the effects on exercise that the medications would have on a COPD patient. Your fitness plan was also not detailed enough (what kind of strength training?). For the cost of this question, there should be more detail to it.
