Samenvatting

Although there is growing evidence on the importance of physical activity and exercise intervention after bariatric surgery, it remains to be clarified as to why and how post-operative exercise intervention should be implemented. In this narrative and practically oriented review, it is explained why exercise interventions and physical activity are important after bariatric surgery, how to prescribe exercise and monitor physical activity and how and when physical fitness, muscle strength, fat (-free) mass and bone mineral density could be assessed during follow-up. It is suggested that the inclusion of physical activity and exercise training in the clinical follow-up trajectory could be of great benefit to bariatric surgery patients, since it leads to greater improvements in body composition, bone mineral density, muscle strength and physical fitness.
