    Topic Overview

    Graded exercise is exercise that starts out slowly and increases in very small steps. It means you have a plan for your exercise. And you follow it closely, even when you're having a good day and feel like doing more. Print a copy of this chart. You can use it to plan your exercise program and track your progress.
