Abstract

Many women who have been treated for breast cancer are at increased risk for bone loss. Strength/weight training exercises (SWTE) may be effective in preventing bone loss and subsequent fractures. The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine psychological factors (self-efficacy, perceived benefits vs. costs, and processes of change) and their relationship to adherence and progression in use of heavier weights in breast cancer survivors (BCS).
