Getting back to Exercise Safely after Lockdown

By September 14, 2021 No Comments

Firstly Welcome Back.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many people to delay participation in sports and other physical activities. The shutdown of schools, gyms and recreation programs, coupled with the restrictions in public spaces, kept people from being active in ways that offer physical and mental well-being.

As you return to public spaces, protect yourself and others and be mindful about how to safely get back into your normal sport or workout routine.

Why is it important to ease into a sport or an exercise program after a break?

The safest thing you can do after a long break in working out or playing sports is to start slowly and gradually build your body’s exercise tolerance back up.

The more you compete or perform an activity, the more your body becomes accustomed to it, When you stop doing that activity, your body doesn’t stay at that level because you’re not using it the same way. Jumping right back into an activity you haven’t done in a while and expecting to pick up where you left off may lead to unwanted aches and pains.

Taking things slowly when resuming your routines can also ensure that you have the proper techniques down before ramping up again.
