Regular exercise increases resistance! Stating that mild and moderate exercise affects the immune system positively, Asst. Prof. Dr. Engin Işık Abanoz said, “Regular moderate exercise increases the resistance against upper respiratory diseases, and the probability of upper respiratory tract infections decreases by 20-30% in people who exercise moderately.” “DURATION AND INTENSENESS OF THE TRAINING IS IMPORTANT” Dr. Engin Işık Abanoz, Head of Recreation Department from Istanbul Gelisim University, stating that social activities in quarantine were restricted during the coronavirus process, said: “Restriction of our social activities brought health problems such as weight loss, muscle strength loss, blood pressure, cholesterol and cardiovascular risk as well as a decrease in the immune system due to immobility. Thanks to digital communication, people quickly realized the risk and turned to home exercises. The benefits of exercise in keeping the immune system strong are obvious, but one thing to consider here is the duration and severity of the exercise.” You can visit www.gelisim.edu.tr to see the detailed news.
