Frailty Community of Practice: Overcoming resistance to resistance training


19 May 2021, 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Webinar via Zoom

The topic for this event is "Overcoming Resistance to Resistance Training". The session will cover:

  • the key components of resistance training and why it is the role of all health professionals to promote it
  • how to raise awareness of exercise as medicine and how to prescribe at the correct dose and intensity
  • dispelling common myths about resistance training
  • how to modify resistance training for differing stages of frailty and a range of care settings.

A series of breakout rooms, led by members of the Resistance Training Working Party will be used to discuss case studies.

Please bring any equipment you have available, for example exercise bands, weights (or water bottles to use as weights) etc, or dial in from your physio gym.


This is a free webinar.
