To determine the effects of aerobic training and resistance training, a combined aerobic and resistance, relative to an attention-control group, on exercise capacity.
The purpose of the study is look at the effects of different modalities of exercise training and its effect on post-surgical lung cancer patients. Subjects will take part in a 16 week training intervention that can consist of aerobic, resistance, aerobic & resistance, or a control group. Pre and Post testing will include stress tests, echos, blood, and urine samples.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
