Exercise is a key component of a healthy lifestyle. As you are readying yourself for surgery, exercise is valuable way to improve your recovery and reduce surgery related complications. After surgery, exercise will help you to maximize your weight loss and improve muscle mass and strength as well as reduce your risks of regaining weight. Start slow, but set goals to improve your time and intensity. Ultimately we recommend that you spend at least 30 minutes 4-6 days per week outside of your daily activities doing a combination of strength training and cardio. See some helpful resources below:
