Movin’ Together: Tool of Strength Training
At this time in our nation, we have entered what we call in the fitness industry, endurance performance training time! The dictionary defines endurance as the ability or strength to continue, or last, especially despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions; stamina. Many of us have experienced adverse conditions regarding COVID-19 with our families, jobs, neighbors, and communities.
When COVID19 first started, most of us knew this was a serious issue but had confidence that it would not be a lasting situation. We now know that our numbers for COVID19 are up in our area of Tioga County, PA, so this is an issue that requires our endurance to stay connected to one another to see where we can offer our support.
This month, in Movin’ Together, our tool of strength training, is our way of supporting each other so we can have the robustness we need for the journey. A general recommendation for lifting weights is to put it into your training routine twice a week for muscle growth and endurance! There is that word again! Strength training is also becoming increasingly important in prevention. It supports the skeletal muscles, an important metabolic organ that performs metabolic functions in addition to movement, holding, and support functions. A few more benefits to mention are the potential to improve flexibility, make positive changes in blood cholesterol, and create higher bone density.
During COVID19, Lauren and Sara have been doing the Movin’ Together weight lifting portion of movements at their respective homes. This video is simply called Weights 1. :) Click on the video below to join Lauren and Sara. If you want more written information on doing the moves, click on this link.
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. While interviewing Dr. Guillermo Rodriquez, a new physician for the Wellsboro Laurel Health Center, Sara asked him how to boost the immune system that helps us to fight off outside invaders like the flu or COVID19.
