To examine the effects of weight training on changes in quality of life (QOL) and depressive symptoms, a randomized intervention trial was performed in 86 recent breast cancer survivors.

Increases in upper body strength and lean mass were correlated with improvements in physical global and psychosocial global score, results that show that twice-weekly weight training for recent breast cancer survivors may result in improved QOL, in part, via changes in body composition and strength.
