Training outside in the spring time with pollen allergies?.

In the early spring we get this question a lot from our clients that are suffering from pollen allergies, and they keep asking for our advice on it at

So here it comes for all of you that are suffering from Pollen allergies in the spring and in the summer time.

Spring time.

Very often the first signs starts to show up in the end of March and early in April, and you know the signs they are as follows, nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy watery eyes and scratchy throat.

For some clients we see that April and May are the worst months and for some it is the June-August that are the worst if they are allergic to grass pollen.

Today there is something-else to also consider and that is the Covid-19 Virus and this should be taken very seriously by everybody who has mid to severe pollen allergies.

The issue from a health standpoint is that when you have a serious allergic reaction like with pollen, your immune system gets overloaded, and this is very bad right now.

Serious allergic reactions with the Covid-19 virus can be fatal and should not be overlooked.

Very often in a normal world it is not that serious if you catch a cold, because you are training with your immune system overloaded due to your allergies, but right now is not a normal world, so you need to be much more careful when you suffer from allergies so you do not contract the Covid-19 due to an overloaded immune system or if you contract it and your immune system is overloaded, it is much tougher to fight off the virus!.

So here are a few things that we implemented last year 2020 during spring and summer time for our clients who suffer from mid to severe levels of allergies.

One of them was that we only train inside when the allergies are at their worst.

So training outside in the spring time with pollen allergies?.

Even if training outside really is appealing when the sun shines, and the weather starts to get warmer, it is not recomended.

So the biking or walking outside is moved to an exercise bike inside.

Outdoor training is moved to the gym inside instead.


We also do recommend that you take your antihistamine medication during this time when your allergies flare up!.

We also recommend that you double the dose of your multivitamin tab each day and add C and D-vitamin also during this time.

When it comes to training we usually train our clients at 75% of the level they normally train at, just to avoid breaking down the immune system further with hardcore training sessions.

So it like a double whammy at the moment when we have allergies and Covid-19 to take into consideration.

 Some clients they have issues from March to September and that is a tough pill to swallow, but you need to take care of your body and being smart, and being proactive is the way to go here.

And of course absolutely no alcohol intake during this time period, when your immune system is down for the count.

So take care out there and keep boosting your immune system with vitamins, fluid(water, protein powder) and good nutrient intake when you are suffering from allergies.
