“As a Biokineticist, we focus on the promotion of health and rehabilitation through exercise to allow for optimal physical functioning in all components of day to day living.” Comments Werner
Exercise has been shown to reduce cardiovascular risks, encourage weight loss (preventing metabolic dysfunction), reap the long term benefits that improve your immune system, as well as helping with maintaining mental health.
Based on the above we can see it is essential to continue with an exercise program during these difficult times. Many people may be intimidated about starting training in an unfamiliar environment and be daunted by the lack of space and equipment but here are some useful tips to do training at home.
1)Planning is essential:
2)High Volume exercise
3)Keep it simple
There are some amazing apps and Youtube videos to help from Addidas and Nike.
As always stop if anything hurts and exercise in a safe place away from dangerous objects.
In this difficult time, our thoughts go out to everyone in South Africa. The challenges we face are many but it is more vital than ever to look after your well-being. Planning and positive goal setting will help you focus on more than the current situation.
