This will be a feasibility study designed to evaluate the compliance of an at-home, directed exercise program and its influence on physical measures during post-operative adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation (if applicable).
Other: standardized regimen of exercises, including a warm-up period, ROM arm exercises, and strength training exercises.
Module I is a group of arm movements. It consists of stretching exercises coordinated with breathing exercises to restore their physical mobility, range of motion and flexibility of shoulders. Module I is to be performed daily. In Module II the exercises are a series of copyrighted, sequential movements designed to put the body in proper alignment. It is a special series of muscle movements to help establish better body alignment, as well as increased strength and flexibility of one's arms, legs, and spine, each exercise is 4 repetitions. Module III is the walking and the resistance weight training program. The walking program is whole body exercise, multi-joint, weight-bearing, low impact and for beginners to advanced.
- To evaluate compliance with and demonstrate the feasibility of an at-home, directed exercise program during adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation (if applicable). [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- To describe how this exercise program affects weight maintenance and percent body fat during adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- To describe how this exercise program affects early post-operative lymphedema rates, monitoring the strength training specifics -including the number of repetitions and sets of each exercise, frequency, and order of exercises. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
