Kristen Holmes discusses our groundbreaking research with Barbells for Boobs, a non-profit working to improve the quality of life and overall outcomes associated with breast cancer. We are examining what WHOOP data looks like in women battling breast cancer. The goal of this study is to gain additional insights into how breast cancer impacts things like strain, sleep, recovery, heart rate variability, resting heart rate, and more.
Dr. Oliver Glass, the Director of Research for Duke University Health and Well Being and Zionna Hanson, the founder of Barbells for Boobs, join Kristen for this episode. They discuss supporting women going through breast cancer (2:31), improving quality of life (5:26), early detection (6:52), optimizing exercise during breast cancer (10:02), dealing with trauma (14:43), initial study impressions (19:16), sleep and stress (24:02), listening to your body (27:00), and being proactive about your health (28:08).
