Reduce cancer related fatigue with resistance and HIIT exercise
A study* by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) found Breast Cancer patients who receive chemotherapy as part of treatment can present with an increase in chemotherapy-led inflammation within the body.
The ACSM completed a study to see how completing resistance training and High Intensity Interval training (HIIT) might help effects of symptoms.
Findings: completing resistance training and some high intensity aerobic activity resulted in a reduction in fatigue post-intervention/exercise.
In some cases, fatigue was reduced by up to 32%.
If you are living with Breast Cancer and wish to incorporate physical activity as part of your lifestyle, we are here to guide you on how to start, progress and maintain activity in a way that works for you.
