A lower-extremity strengthening exercise (LESE) program addressing high-intensity interval training was designed to improve the lower limb function of people with chronic psychiatric disorders. This clinical control trial showed that the 16-week LESE program significantly increased clients' lower limb muscle strength and endurance. OTs working with the client population should include lower-extremity exercises as a preparatory task for supporting occupation-based activities.
