progressive resistance exercise (PRE)

a method of increasing the strength of a weak or injured muscle by gradually increasing the resistance against which the muscle works, such as by using graduated weights. Also called graduated resistance exercise. See also active resistance exercise, Delorme technique, progressive assistive exercise.
