Resistance Band Training


During and after cancer treatment, you may experience loss of muscle mass that can lead to muscle weakness and fatigue. In this workshop, led by an MSK clinical fitness specialist, you will learn to use resistance bands to rebuild strength for all of your large muscle groups.

Resistance bands are designed to help you with stretching and muscle strength training. They work like weights, except that instead of gravity pulling down on your muscles, you are using the tension in the elastic band. 

A regular routine using resistance bands will help you to improve your range of motion, strength, endurance, and flexibility.
