  1. a All biological measures are considered to be standard of care at baseline and 12 months. PSA is considered to be standard of care at all 3 time points. Blood glucose, cholesterol profile, and haemoglobin tests at 6 months are NOT standard of care
  2. b Can be done on separate day to reduce participant burden
  3. c Will only be measured in participants who are not on continuous ADT for the duration of the intervention
  4. d Includes BIA, waist circumference, and waist circumference: height ratio
  5. e Only for those in supervised groups (done weekly)
