Report Keeping Up With Exercise in Dysautonomia Discussion Posted October 31, 2013 Exercise has helped me feel better, but it has certainly not cured my POTS and whatever the underlying cause is. After exercising regularly for about 4 months - a similar amount to what you are doing - I adding intervals to my exercise routine. That gave me an additional boost so that I felt better more of the time. Previously, I was following the Levine protocol. I do intervals on a recumbent bike: warm up, then alternate 1 minute high resistance, 1 min low, 10x (total of 20min) then cool down. On the high intensity I go to about 90% of max HR (closer to 100% on the final intervals). I cut back on my exercise if I feel unwell, with dizziness or weakness.I don't think there is research yet on interval training for POTS, and I would always advise to listen to your body. I speculate that taking my HR up and down in such a controlled way helps me a bit more, beyond what the Levine program was doing.
