SARS‐CoV‐2 infection, better known as coronavirus, is not just a lung disease. This virus is also considered a multi-organ disease, that is, it can cause damage to different organs of the body.
In this sense, performing some physical activity can help you recover the health of your body after overcoming the symptoms of COVID-19. However, it is not recommended to start exercising without the authorization of a doctor.
What happens to our body after Covid?
This disease forces you to maintain a state of rest for several days, even weeks depending on the severity of your symptoms. In this way, immobility and lack of physical activity can generate a reduction of your muscle mass and a feeling of constant fatigue.
These problems can be solved by implementing a simple exercise training routine to improve the condition of your lungs and other organs. Subsequently, it is recommended to increase the intensity of the exercises once your body adapts to physical activity again, although this process takes time.
Exercises to improve your lungs
The main symptoms of Covid affect your respiratory system, so after overcoming the disease, your lungs may not have the same capacity as before. For this, doctors recommend doing aerobic exercise for at least 10 minutes each day. If you keep exercising, then your lungs will fully recover in a short time.
We should mention that it is very important to consult your doctor before starting to exercise. Remember that Covid-19 and its variants can cause some health problems even after you have overcome the disease.
