Strength After Cancer
“Start low, progress slow, and let symptoms be your guide.”
Strength after Cancer is an exercise protocol specific to survivors to ease the transition into a consistent exercise routine, with an emphasis on weight-bearing, resistive exercises and correct posture/body mechanics. Participants will meet 1 time every 2 weeks for 6-8 sessions, focusing on intensity, frequency and duration under the guidelines of “start low, progress slow, and let symptoms be your guide.” Exercises will focus on functional movements that are relevant to the participants’ goals, where success is ultimately measured by the return to satisfying and independent activities.
