A Study of Exercise Modality and Physical Self-esteem in Breast Cancer Survivors

A Study of Exercise Modality and Physical Self-esteem in Breast Cancer Survivors A Study of Exercise Modality and Physical Self-esteem in Breast Cancer Survivors RITA MUSANTI Department of Nursing Education and Research, Morristown Memorial Hospital, Morristown, NJ; and School of Nursing, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Newark, NJ ABSTRACT MUSANTI, R. A Study of Exercise Modality and Physical Self-esteem in Breast Cancer Survivors. Med. Sci. Sports Exerc.,Vol.44, No. 2, pp. 352–361, 2012. Purpose: This study, theoretically based on the Exercise Self-Esteem Model, EXSEM, examined effects of exercise modality on physical and global self-esteem (PSE, GSE) in breast cancer survivors. The EXSEM posits GSE at the apex with PSE feeding into GSE. PSE has three subdomains: physical condition (PC), attractive body (AB), and physical strength (PS). The goals were to compare the effect of combination modality versus single-modality exercise on PSE and GSE and to explore the relationship between exercise modality and the subdomains of PSE. Methods: Survivors were randomly allocated to flexibility (F), aerobic (A), resistance (R), or aerobic plus resistance (AR), 12-wk, individualized, home-based exercise program. Pre/posttesting included submaximal treadmill test, six-repetition maximum chest press and leg press, YMCA bench press, shoulder/hip flexibility, and bioelectric impedance analysis body composition.
