The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all our lives; no matter where we live or what we do. While in isolation we should try to do look after ourselves and our loved ones, as best we can.
The evidence is clear on the key factors; with the right nutrition and exercise we can maintain our muscles and give our bodies the best chance to fight illness. It is the combination of strength training and protein intake that can help us to stay healthy – we need protein to build muscles that then become our protein reserves – the “banks” we can withdraw from when our body needs to fight viruses and rebuild cells. Understanding that muscles could act as an immune organ by producing acute phase protective proteins, regular strength training might be a crucial preventive action to fight against the coronavirus.
To make this journey easier, HUR Australia is presenting a free webinar with guest speakers with a wide knowledge on the topics required to survive the isolation successfully; muscle health, nutrition, home exercise and the transition of health and wellness from clinic to home. This webinar is open to all, with registration via our web site, huraustralia.com.au/webinars.
