Participants will take part in an exercise program in which they will be encouraged to perform approximately 30 minutes of resistance training exercises approximately twice per week until they undergo CAR-T therapy (Approximately 4-6 weeks). Participants will also be encouraged to perform moderate aerobic exercise such as brisk walking or using stationary aerobic equipment at least 3 times per week. Participants will wear a FitBit fitness watch to monitor aerobic exercise.
Participants will be encouraged to perform approximately 30 minutes of resistance training exercises twice per week, until they undergo CART-T therapy. Exercises will be performed using resistance tubes (Bodylastics Resistance Bands Set) and a connectable bar (Bionic Body Workout Bar) that mimics a weighted barbell when tubes are attached. The tubes provide up to 142 pounds of resistance (adjustable in increments between 3-10 pounds) when simultaneously connected to handles or bar, and multiple tubes can be attached simultaneously.
Behavioral: Aerobic Exercise
Participants will be encouraged to perform ≥30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise on ≥3 days per week. Aerobic exercise intensity will be guided by heart rate zones, with participants exercising at 50-70% of their age-predicted maximum heart rate in bouts of at least 10 minutes at a time. Participants will be encouraged to gradually increase exercise intensity and duration until they are meeting the recommendation
