  2. List of Safe and Productive Exercises

Reduced physical activity may cause tiredness and a lack of energy as a consequence of feeling ill from either the cancer and/or the cancer treatment. Regular, moderate exercise may assist you in lowering these feelings, remain active, and boost your energy. It is also frequently possible to exercise whilst undergoing cancer therapy.


Following are some guidelines to remember:


  • Before the commencement of  an exercise regime, consult your doctor.
  • A successful fitness program should begin slowly to enable the body to adapt.
  • Include a regular exercise routine. At least three times a week, you can engage in some kind of physical activity.
  • You should never feel sore, stiff, or exhausted when engaging the correct kind of exercise. You are overdoing it if you encounter soreness, stiffness, exhaustion, or shortness of breath as a repercussion of your workout.


The majority of exercises are safe as long as you perform  with caution and don’t overdo it. The following are the safest and most productive activities:


  • Swimming
  • Brisk walking
  • Indoor stationary cycling
  • Low-impact aerobics (taught by a certified instructor).

These exercises bring minimal potential for injury and are beneficial to the whole body.
