Help change life with cancer. For good

5 Minute Chair Based Exercise

5 minutes a day muscle strength maintenance routine - chair based for those with limited mobility.

In this video Alisa shows you a 5 minute daily exercise routine that you can do to maintain your muscle strength.

Every 5 mins really makes a difference towards your physical and mental health and can improve your cancer outcomes and quality of life.

Many oncologists and exercise researchers are referring to movement or exercise as medicine.

Do tell your doctor or health care team if you are making a significant change to your activity levels, follow their advice and build back to being active in small steps.  Don’t exercise if you think you will experience any adverse effects. Stop straight away if you experience any pain or adverse effects and seek advice.
