TRX Chest Press Walk Through For Breast Cancer Recovery

by Laura Lummer-Sigmon


The TRX walk through chest press is the first in this five part series. This is the starting point once you've been cleared for exercise to start building your upper body strength and to increase mobility through the chest. This movement allows you to put your mind at ease as you test your movement ability and have complete control over the amount of pressure you apply to the chest. Once you build your confidence through this movement, progress to the offset stance.

Laura Lummer-Sigmon IDEA Author/Presenter

After completing treatment for breast cancer in 2012, I gained first-hand experience of the damaging effects of cancer treatment. I opted not to go the prescription drug route of managing, weight gain, bone and joint pain, neuropathy, and debilitating fatigue. Instead, I turned to food, movement, mindfulness and holistic treatments to regain my health. Through this experience, I developed a passion for supporting other cancer survivors in overcoming the challenges brought on by treatment and in getting back to living a thriving and fulfilling life. I became a mentor for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, and I launched a podcast, "The Breast Cancer Recovery Coach". Cancer patients have unique needs and concerns and I am honored to get to work with these amazing people and to see their strengths manifest into creating healthy, happy lives.
