Resistance Training, Fatigue, Quality of Life, Anxiety in Breast Cancer Survivors This paper is noteworthy in that the researchers report a single resistance training session each week for 8 weeks produced meaningful improvements in physical functioning (+27%, p = 0.027); physical role functioning (+54%, p = 0.008); emotional role functioning (+42%, p = 0.027); [...]

Breast cancer and treatment impacts on muscle strength All patients with breast cancer or post treatment should perform at least two resistance training sessions per week to maintain muscle mass, strength and physical function. As expected these authors report that women who have undergone breast cancer treatment have lower muscle strength compared to matched [...]
Professor Newton was an invited speaker at the Cancer Prevention - Physical Activity Virtual Conference hosted by Cancer Research UK and Ludwig Cancer Research from 23-25 February 2021. Professor Newton presented on "Exercise as Medicine for Cancer" and covered a range of topics including: Exercise medicine across the cancer continuum Physical activity and exercise [...]
HIGH-INTENSITY INTERVAL VS. CONTINUOUS ENDURANCE TRAINING: PREVENTIVE EFFECTS ON HORMONAL CHANGES AND PHYSIOLOGICAL ADAPTATIONS IN PREDIABETES PATIENTS While this paper is not specifically in patients with cancer, pre-diabetes, diabetes and metabolic syndrome are very common health issues for cancer management and the systemic milieu that is produces definitely increases the growth rate and likelihood [...]
Does exercise intensity matter for fatigue during (neo-)adjuvant cancer treatment? The Phys-Can randomised clinical trial Researchers conducting this exercise medicine trial involving 577 patients report that high intensity combination exercise medicine produced significantly better cancer related fatigue outcome compared to low-moderate intensity although the difference was not clinically meaningful. Interestingly, the addition of behaviour [...]
Psychological distress in men with prostate cancer undertaking androgen deprivation therapy: modifying effects of exercise from a year-long randomized controlled trial Various supervised exercise modes (aerobic, resistance and impact loading) are effective in reducing psychological distress in men with prostate cancer on ADT. Those with the highest level of psychological distress improved the most. [...]
Compliance to aerobic and resistance training exercise prescription is higher for PT supervised versus group-based exercise The results of this study are somewhat expected but it was surprising that there was such a difference in resistance training intensity (73% 1RM versus 56% 1RM). Group-based exercise is more efficient, reducing cost for the patient and [...]
Vigorous physical activity is associated with additional mortality risk reduction compared with moderate physical activityadmin2021-03-25T03:07:47+00:00
Association of Physical Activity Intensity With Mortality A National Cohort Study of 403 681 US Adults In this exceptionally large epidemiology study it was concluded that for the same volume of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA), a higher proportion of vigorous physical activity (VPA) to total physical activity was associated with lower all-cause mortality. [...]
What is the minimal dose for resistance exercise effectiveness in prostate cancer patients? Systematic review and meta-analysis on patient-reported outcomes Even a relatively low dosage of resistance training results in clinically significant benefits in men with prostate cancer if intensity is moderate to high. This is in part because most are untrained to begin [...]
Resistance training attenuates decline in skeletal muscle function during doxorubicin treatment While this is a pre-clinical study in rodents there are important implications for exercise medicine. Doxorubicin reduces muscle mass and strength however the relatively low intensity resistance training implemented prevented muscle loss and increased muscle strength. Abstract Previous research has shown that resistance [...]
