The American College of Sports Medicine in conjunction with Exercise is Medicine has provided information on how to stay active and healthy during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends 150-300 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity and 2 sessions per week of muscle strength training. Fit in 2, 5, 10 or 20 minutes, however and wherever you can. Every active minute counts!”
Here are some strategies to maintain physical activity and fitness:
1. Dance to your favorite music
2. Grab a soccer ball, football or Frisbee and play outdoors (if allowed in your community)
3. Do Body Weight Exercises like Squats, Lunges, Push-ups and Planks
4. Do an Exercise Video
5. Practice Yoga at home
6. Have your trusted Personal Trainer come to your home gym
Whatever you choose, the ACSM reminds you to “Stay Positive. Stay Active. Be smart and safe.”
