Mix Up Your Exercise Post COVID 19
Fitness Friday Series with Sabrena Jo
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #459. Today’s show is brought to you by Theragun.
Staying in during COVID-19 restrictions shouldn’t mean spending hours on the couch, especially for those of us in The Not Old Better Show audience. Our guest today, returning favorite, Sabrena Jo, Director of Science and Research Content, at the American Council on Exercise, knows this subject well and will share much with us today to help us protect our health during COVID 19, and promote better health.
It is always important for older adults to exercise to help improve their overall immunity, but especially now during the spread of COVID-19 when they are at greater risk of complications from the virus. Other benefits to exercising include increasing strength and flexibility, which can help reduce the risk of falls, stress relief, and better sleep.
So, what can active adults do easily at home? Here are simple exercises that can be done while watching your favorite show or outside in your backyard getting some fresh air. On the Fitness Friday program, we talk with Sabrena Jo about exercise and fitness. But, with all of us facing the ‘new normal,’ of COVID – 19, we are more aware than ever that the COVID – 19 pandemics has rapidly changed how we live, work, exercise, and learn. First and foremost, I want to assure everyone that the safety of older adults, a population is known to be at high risk, is paramount to us here at The Not Old Better Show. As a matter of fact, today we’ll be talking to Sabrena Jo about adjusting to the ‘new normal,’ exercising in light of social distancing, and staying fit during the pandemic. All of us in The Not Old Better Show audience are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 which may result in increased stress during a crisis. Fear and anxiety about the COVID-19 pandemic can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions, which exercise can lessen.
