Transmission - lower road range question

When repairing the front end of my car I knew I would have to top up the ATF.  I established that the ATF had not been changed at 40,000 miles, so I decided to drain the remaining fluid and change the filter at the same time.  That went more or less as expected; new crush washer on the drain plug and filter just needs 17mm socket to loosen / tighten its cover.
 
My question relates to the wording in the service manual for the procedure to be followed after the initial fill.  It states to 'warm up the transmission in lower road range; switch all transmission ranges several times while doing so.'
 
For 'lower road range', is this referring to selecting 'off-road' or something else?  For switching all transmission ranges, is that awkward wording for cycle through drive, park, neutral, reverse?
 
Any advice much appreciated.
 
Regards
Graeme

    It is actually lower load range rather than lower road range.  The answer from my local OPC is to cycle round manual, park, neutral, reverse - no need to switch to manual mode.
