Re: exercise

In general it is thought to be better in the presence of muscle disease to increase the repetitions and exercise for longer rather than increase the resistance as the aim of exercise in these conditions is to promote fitness and endurance i.e. to keep the remaining muscle fit and active rather than look for any significant increase in strength.
