Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the effect of high-intensity to moderate-intensity aerobic training, relative to attention-control, on peak oxygen consumption. [ Time Frame: 3 time-points ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    VO2 or peak oxygen consumption will be measured at 3 time-points. Baseline, mid-point (8 weeks), and post-intervention (16 weeks).


Estimated Enrollment: 174
Study Start Date: August 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: High-intensity Training
Aerobic training will be prescribed based on the principles of the ACSM guidelines based on the investigator preference and prior published data with the aim of improving VO2 peak. All session will be on a cycle ergometry and last 30-45 minutes in duration. The goal is to perform 100% of baseline peak.
Behavioral: High-Intensity Aerobic Training
Exercise will take place at the Center for Living in Durham, North Carolina three days per week. All exercise is supervised by a master's trained Exercise Physiologist.
Experimental: Moderate-Intensity Training
The goal for moderate-intensity training is 5 cycle ergometry 3 times per week at 75% pf baseline VO2 for 30-45 minutes per session.
Behavioral: Moderate-Intensity Aerobic Training
Exercise will take place at the Center for Living in Durham, North Carolina three days per week. All exercise is supervised by a master's trained Exercise Physiologist.
Experimental: Progressive Stretching
The progressive stretching program will be prescribed according to the ACSM guidelines for older adults and aimed at increasing whole-body flexibility.
Behavioral: Progressive Stretching
Exercise will take place at the Center for Living in Durham, North Carolina three days per week. All exercise is supervised by a master's trained Exercise Physiologist.

Detailed Description:

In this study we want to compare the effect of high-intensity to moderate-intensity aerobic training, relative to attention-control, on peak oxygen consumption.

This study will include women who are at least 21 years old, an interval of no longer than 5 years following completion of primary therapy, life expectancy of greater than 6 months, sedentary, willingness to be randomized, and signed consent form prior to all study assessments.
