One group will receive today's standard rehabilitation program following hip fracture
surgery. The intervention group will have maximal strength training incorporated in their
program. It consists of 3 training sessions per week for 8 weeks, where 4-5 repetitions over
4 sets for leg press and abduction resistance exercise at ~85% of maximal strength is carried
out. Muscle strength, balance and bone density will be compared between the groups following
the 8-week rehabilitation period. The feasibility of the intervention for the patient group
will be evaluated based on compliance with training program and possible adverse events
related to the operated hip.
