A Study on the Effects of Exercise on Side Effects From Treatment for Rectal Cancer

A Study on the Effects of Exercise on Side Effects From Treatment for Rectal Cancer
Experimental: 90 min/wk

AT will consist of individualized walking delivered up to 7 times per week to achieve a cumulative total duration of: Arm 1: 90 min/wk. AT therapy within each arm will follow a non-linear (i.e., AT dose is continually altered and progressed in conjunction with appropriate rest/recovery sessions across the entire intervention period) dosing schedule delivered up to surgery (~32 weeks), or for ~32 weeks if undergoing watch-and-wait. AT will be monitored using TeleEx, a telemedicine solution pioneered in our program.

Behavioral: structured treadmill walking

Three doses of AT (i.e., 90, 150, or 300 mins/week) will be tested. All doses will consist of individualized walking delivered up to 7 times per week delivered from TNT initiation until surgery (~32 weeks).
