Resistance Exercise Dosage in Men with Prostate Cancer: Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Meta-regression Purpose Resistance training (RT) improves an array of treatment-related adverse effects in men with prostate cancer, however, the minimal dosage required is unknown. We systematically reviewed the RT effects in prostate cancer patients to determine the minimal dosage regarding the exercise [...]

Resistance training in breast cancer patients undergoing primary treatment: a systematic review and meta-regression of exercise dosage Latest systematic review & meta-regression from our team at Edith Cowan University suggesting low volume resistance training may be sufficient to induce beneficial strength gains in women with breast cancer while undergoing treatment. In untrained women a low dosage [...]
Efficacy of a weight loss program prior to robot assisted radical prostatectomy in overweight and obese men with prostate cancer Background Obesity in prostate cancer patients is associated with poor prostate-cancer specific outcomes. Exercise and nutrition can reduce fat mass; however, few studies have explored this as a combined pre-surgical intervention in clinical practice. [...]
Exercise modulation of tumour perfusion and hypoxia to improve radiotherapy response in prostate cancer Background An increasing number of studies indicate that exercise plays an important role in the overall care of prostate cancer (PCa) patients before, during and after treatment. Historically, research has focused on exercise as a modulator of physical function, psychosocial [...]
Keeping Patients With Cancer Exercising in the Age of COVID-19 The novel 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is a global public health emergency. To date, physical distancing and good personal hygiene have been the only effective measures to limit spread. The pandemic has altered routine cancer care, including allied health and supportive care interventions. [...]
Physical deterioration and adaptive recovery in physically inactive breast cancer patients during adjuvant chemotherapy: a randomised controlled trial This clinical trial was conducted in breast cancer patients undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy. This was a head to head comparison of hospital based moderate - high intensity supervised exercise program versus instructed home-based pedometer intervention. Cardiorespiratory fitness [...]
Resistance Training during Chemotherapy with Doxorubicin This is a preclinical animal study adding to the growing body of evidence that targeted exercise can reduce or eliminate some side effects of chemotherapy. In this case muscle mass and strength loss was attenuated by resistance training. Not a study in humans and the animals did not [...]
Effect of Cancer on Clinical Outcomes of Patients With COVID-19: A Meta-Analysis of Patient Data This paper is a systematic review and meta-analysis. The authors report that cancer is associated with worse clinical outcomes among patients with COVID-19. However, elderly patients with cancer may not be at increased risk of death when infected with [...]
If you build it, will they come? Evaluation of a co‐located exercise clinic and cancer treatment centre using the RE‐AIM framework Around 10 years ago we started working with GenesisCare to develop exercise medicine services to support their cancer care. Our team established an exercise clinic within the new GenesisCare centre in Joondalup, Western [...]
Exercise‐induced attenuation of treatment side‐effects in patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer beginning androgen‐deprivation therapy: a randomised controlled trial A key takeaway from this study was that a 3-month combined aerobic and resistance training program prevented adverse cardiorespiratory and fatigue changes in men initiating ADT for prostate cancer. However, once they transitioned to exercise [...]
