Experimental: Resistance training
Patients with COPD will participate in 4 weeks (12 sessions) of individualized, non-linear, lower body resistance training.
Behavioral: Individualized Resistance Training
Lower body resistance exercises will be prescribed in various combinations over multiple days and individually modified and progressed to achieve advances in both movement pattern, intensity, and exercise volume.
- Dyspnea [ Time Frame: Baseline and post 4 weeks (12 sessions) of resistance training ]The change in the sensory intensity of dyspnea measured at an iso-time during the constant load exercise trials post RT
- Exercise Tolerance [ Time Frame: Baseline and post 4 weeks (12 sessions) of resistance training ]The change in the time to exhaustion during constant load exercise on a stationary cycle ergometer.
- Secondary Dyspnea Outcomes [ Time Frame: Baseline and post 4 weeks (12 sessions) of resistance training ]The change in the unpleasantness and sensory qualities of dyspnea measured at an iso-time during the constant load exercise trials post RT
- Quadriceps Fatigue [ Time Frame: Baseline and post 4 weeks (12 sessions) of resistance training ]Change in the amount of decline in force production after 3 minutes of electrical stimulation of femoral nerve at 25% of maximal voluntary contraction
- Muscle Strength and Endurance [ Time Frame: Baseline and post 4 weeks (12 sessions) of resistance training ]The change in 6RM quadriceps muscle strength and quadricep muscle endurance at 50% of predicted 1 RM
