Did you know A 2019 review in the Journal of Sport and Health Science found that moderate exercise can boost your immune system’s defense activity and metabolic health?
This is important as we are dealing with Global health pandemic and the fear of a second wave of this virus.
Just 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week is all it takes to see beneficial results. That’s less than 1 hour, 3 days a week. I’m sure you can find that in your schedule.
Here are 3-types of exercise to boost your immune system
Strength training is a method of exercise that includes moves meant to improve your body’s strength and stamina. You don’t need lots of weight to elicit a change. If you’re new to strength training even the easiest variations of exercises will stimulate a response, and as you get stronger, you can increase the weight, reps, sets, or reduce your rest time to keep progressing.
HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING
Also known as HIIT, high-intensity interval training has you perform an exercise hard as you can, for a set time (usually anywhere from 20 to 60 seconds) and then resting for the same amount of time. Compared to slow-and-steady exercise, you’ll jack your heart rate up far higher, far faster.
If it’s been a while since you exercised regularly, skip HIIT to start and build up your base level of fitness with light strength training and walking.
WALKING and HIKING
Not ready to try strength training? Take a walk. Being inside and glued to our screens is not good for us — we don’t need research to tell us that, although it does. Though social distancing regulations are in place, you can go outside, which is what you should be doing because it lowers depression.
