Pulmonary rehabilitation has been emerged as a recommended standard of care for patients with chronic lung disease based on a growing body of scientific evidence. A set of evidence-based guidelines were published in American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). Since then, the published literature in pulmonary rehabilitation has increased substantially, and other societies have published important statements about pulmonary rehabilitation (eg, the American Thoracic Society and the European Respiratory Society).
In patients with COPD, there is a strong scientific basis for implementing conventional resistance training (CRT) in addition to endurance training. Endurance training, such as walking, is a key component of pulmonary rehabilitation and improves in exercise tolerance and muscular endurance. However, this type of training may not reverse muscle weakness or atrophy. For that reason, strength training seems to be the optimum training modality to increase muscle mass and strength.
Recently, Whole-Body-Vibration (WBV) training has been promoted as an alternative for resistance training on multigym equipment. In WBV training, the subject stands on a platform that generates vertical sinusoidal vibration, during which static and dynamic exercises can be performed.
The present study is conducted to provide an answer on the following question: will a resistance training program, such as the whole body vibration, be even effective than a conventional resistance training program in patients with COPD.

This study explored the effect of whole-body vibration (WBV) using accelerations of 2.56 g to 7.68 g on lower-body detraining.
In resistance training, load intensity is usually calculated as the percentage of a maximum repetition (1RM) or maximum number of possible repetitions (% of 1RM). Some studies have proposed a lactate ...
A variety of different types of exercise are promoted to improve muscle strength and physical performance in older people.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
