The purpose

The study will evaluate the utility of hypoxic exercise training to improve cardiovascular and metabolic health among obese breast cancer survivors. While participants exercise, a lower fraction of inspired oxygen will be used to simulate a higher altitude. This approach removes the mechanical strain needed to sustain moderate-to-vigorous exercise intensity which is believed to support exercise tolerance. Participants are randomized to either the treatment (walking+simulated-altitude) or control (walking under normoxic conditions).

Provided treatments

  • Other: Walking+simulated-altitude
  • Behavioral: Walking (control)
