Update on COVID-19 training tips.

Hi, guys, so we have now a track record that we can see from people who got the Covid-19 and who where healthy people who working out a lot.

As we know from before is that when you train hard you break down your body in the process.

And usually around 36-48 hours after a gruesome training session our bodies are much more (open) to catch and infection.

And in normal cases that would not be anything to really pay attention to or be very concerned with.

But with the Covid-19 pandemic there is clear evidence that training to hard will make you much more vulnerable to the infection.

So if you normally train really hard 3-5 times a week, we do recommend you to cut down the training to twice a week and do not empty out all the white and red blood cells in the process.

Meaning do not train to failure of any sorts.

Focus on having something left in the tank when you are done training.

Much rather train 45 min 3 times a week and leave it at that.

This is not the time to train for Iron man and similar gruesome training session.

Nor is a 2 hours 3 times a week in the gym type of training good for you either.

So be smart, keep in shape, keep training but do not train to failure.

When we have looked at people that we know in the fitness,personal training industry and their clients, it is clear that the people who train a lot and for a long time each session as been hit the hardest from the Covid-19 pandemic.

So the daily one hour walk is fine, and then two or three 45 min session is the way to go here to be as safe as possible.

Also remember to use training gloves that covers all fingers also in the gym and wash them after every training session.

And do not touch your face when training without using paper towels and no gloves on your hands.

Take care.

Rick.
