The Importance Of Exercising At Home During COVID-19
Hi. Mark and Ringo here at Fyzical. Ringo’s practicing good health here during this time. So, one thing I’ve been hearing from patients is we are going to come out of this with either having to go to Weight Watchers or Alcoholics Anonymous. The facts are if you don’t want to be the one having to go to Weight Watchers, you need to be doing exercises. Just because gyms are closed and where you might be exercising in the past you can’t get into now doesn’t give you a free pass. You’ve got all kinds of options you can do at home. You have to keep moving. This is not an excuse just to sit down and park yourself.
What I am very big on, and if you followed anything that I’ve talked about, are lower body exercises, specifically glutes. Why? Because you have to get from point A to point B. If you can curl up to 2,000 pounds but you can’t walk across the floor, it’s not going to help you. You need to be doing lower body exercises. You could do them very easily at home and you no excuses for not doing them. I’m going to show you what you can do.
First thing, though, is if you’re spending more time sitting and being at computers, it’s important that you stand every 30 minutes, even if you only take five or 10 seconds, but get out of that seated position. It is important to refresh everything, stretch everything out, then sit back down. Too many people are finding themselves sitting there for hours and they look up at the clock and they realize it’s afternoon already and they haven’t moved. Try to make yourself get up every 30 minutes.
