BACKGROUND Strength training or aerobic exercise programmes, or both, might optimise muscle and cardiorespiratory function and prevent additional disuse atrophy and deconditioning in people with a muscle disease. This is an update of a review first published in 2004 and last updated in 2013. We undertook an update to incorporate new evidence in this active area of research. OBJECTIVES To assess the effects (benefits and harms) of strength training and aerobic exercise training in people with… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Efficacy of a physical activity programme combining individualized aerobic exercise and coaching to improve physical fitness in neuromuscular diseases (I’M FINE): study protocol of a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The I’M FINE study will provide evidence regarding the efficacy of a physical activity intervention on the physical fitness and active lifestyle over the short- and long-term in individuals with slowly progressive NMD and provide insight in achieving a more active lifestyle in NMD.
Effect of Muscular Exercise on Patients With Muscular Dystrophy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of the Literature
TLDR
Muscular exercise did not improve muscle strength and was associated with modest improvements in endurance during walking in patients with facio-scapulo-humeral and myotonic dystrophy.
Physical activity in idiopathic inflammatory myopathies: two intervention proposals based on literature review
TLDR
In IIM patients physical activity improves residual muscle function and prevents muscle atrophy, and the constant practice of physical activity may also lead to cardiopulmonary, endocrine and immunological benefits inIIM patients.
Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy: genetics, gene activation and downstream signalling with regard to recent therapeutic approaches: an update
TLDR
There remains an incomplete understanding of the pathophysiology of FSHD in relation to the molecules leading to DUX4 gene activation and the downstream gene targets of Dux4 that cause its toxic effects.

Strength training and aerobic exercise training for muscle disease.
TLDR
Moderate-intensity strength training in myotonic dystrophy and FSHD and aerobic exercise training in dermatomyositis and polymyositis, and mitochondrial myopathy appear to do no harm, but there is insufficient evidence to conclude that they offer benefit.
Strength training and aerobic exercise training for muscle disease.
TLDR
Moderate-intensity strength training appears not to do harm but there is insufficient evidence to conclude that it offers benefit, and mitochondrial myopathy, aerobic exercise combined withstrength training appears to be safe and may be effective in increasing submaximal endurance capacity.

Physical training for McArdle disease.
TLDR
Evidence from non-randomised studies using small numbers of patients suggest that it would be safe and worthwhile for larger controlled trials of aerobic training to be undertaken in people with McArdle disease.
Safety and efficacy of exercise training in adults with Pompe disease: evalution of endurance, muscle strength and core stability before and after a 12 week training program
TLDR
This study shows that a combination of aerobic, strength and core stability exercises is feasible, safe and beneficial to adults with Pompe disease.
Endurance training improves fitness and strength in patients with Becker muscular dystrophy.
TLDR
Endurance training is a safe method to increase exercise performance and daily function in patients with the dystrophinopathy, Becker muscular dystrophy, and the findings support an active approach to rehabilitation of patients with BMD.
Improvement in Aerobic Capacity After an Exercise Program in Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis
TLDR
An aerobic exercise program can be safely tolerated by patients with sporadic IBM and can improve aerobic capacity and muscle strength when combined with resistance training, indicating that aerobic and functional muscle strengthening exercise should be considered in the management of patients with IBM.
Exercise training in mitochondrial myopathy: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Results show that the exercise program is an adequate training strategy for patients with mitochondrial myopathy and improved Nottingham Health Profile scores and clinical symptoms.
Safety and efficacy of strength training in patients with sporadic inclusion body myositis
TLDR
It is concluded that a supervised progressive resistance training program in IBM patients can lead to gains in dynamic strength of the least weak muscles without causing muscle fatigue and muscle injury or serological, histological, and immunological abnormalities.
