Leukaemia & Exercise – Fit2Thrive
Leukaemia & Exercise – Fit2Thrive

The Man Plan is an exercise regimen for prostate cancer sufferers. It is specifically designed to use resistance training to offset some of the side effects some patients may experience whilst on ADT treatment including weight gain, changes in bone density, neuromuscular disorders, arthralgia, myalgia and general asthenia. The program has been developed by the Vario Health Institute at Edith Cowan University, for Abbott Australasia, to support patients who have been prescribed Lucrin.

Lucrin (Leuprorelin Acetate) slows prostate cancer growth by reducing testosterone in the patient to very low levels. Recent studies have shown significant benefits from resistance exercise in prostate cancer patients undertaking ADT.

The goal of The Man Plan program is to teach patients to be able to exercise safely and effectively in their own home or at their local gym on an ongoing basis. The Faculty of Health Clinics offer support to the patients via face to face training sessions facilitated by an accredited Exercise Physiologist.

The Man Plan Face to Face Program is up to 10 weeks in duration and includes 18 sessions in total. These sessions consist of two supervised group sessions of resistance-based exercise per week (16 sessions) plus one initial and one final individual assessment appointment. The 18 sessions will be majority funded by Abbott with a small co-contribution by the patient.

If you require more information about the Man Plan program, please contact Health Studio on 07 4755 0715 or alternately email us at info@healthstudio.com.au
