Hola Ladies xo
Was wondering if anyone has a favourite exercise routine/class or style or piece of equipment they use? Also curious if anyone out there has tried a strength training program while being on Avastin? Wondering about if you find your recovery time different? If so, how do u manage it? Do you have a trainer? Does anyone know of a personal trainer in Winnipeg that has experience working with cancer patients or ppl on Avastin? Thanks so much!
I guess at this point I am wanting to move past the gentle yoga/stretching etc and would like to have more of a strength and muscle building focus. But noticing while on Avastin my body reacts different to exercise-the recovery is wierd, I'm finding my muscles don't recover as quickly and find it more difficult to build new muscle. I haven't been able to find any info on Avastin and strength training- or info on the overall impact the training would have. Have just been doing my own trial and error- but would love to hear from anyone else who may be trying the same thing .
Thank you for all the great response!
Thanks for sharing the info about the Yoga app. It sounds like a lot of people might be interested in it. I encourage you to post this information in the Books and Resources discussion too....
I found chair exercises on UTUBE that were being hosted by a Caribbean host to help me get back some of my strength without being worried of falling. Now I can pretty well do my usual workout routines, but feel fatigued after. I find it helps to have a protein snack afterwards, but I noticed that I'm having issues building muscle. Does anyone else have this issue?
Ingrid, I was just looking at your profile - you had an ovarian cyst for 3 years? They thought it was just some benign thing and not to worry? That's kind of scary? How is everything now?
