Exercise intensities of low-to-moderate intensity (LMI) and moderate-to-high (MHI) intensity endurance and resistance prescription related to cancer treatment and physical level.

HRR, heart rate reserve; BORG (0–10), modified rating of perceived exertion scale; 1-RM, one-repetition maximum. level was determined on completion of a 6-minute time walk test [26] and a functional assessment before commencing the exercise classes. Where training intensity seemed too high or too low, the HRR, BORG, or 1-RM was reassessed.
