Do to the viral outbreak problem there is renewed interest in immune system function. In that the entire purpose of strength exercise is to stimulate a strong immune response we have plenty of experience with the subject.
When you place your muscles under significant tension from heavy loads and train them until they are fully fatigued you initiate messaging to your body. The message is to repair and repair stronger and more enduring than before.
At our private personal training studio in Ottawa we take full advantage of this physiological phenomena. We see that when this stimulus is applied in a precise manner the outcome for the client is remarkable. They’re entire body from their bones to their immune system becomes fortified and resilient.
There are two main components to the health of your immune system function. The first is a strong controlled responsiveness and the second is a strong super structure (bones, muscles etc). When the structure of your body is strong you handle all stress far better and thus reduce burden on your immune system.
So you can see that not only can you train your immune system by using a dose/response approach to strength exercise but additionally the results of your bodies response help protect your immune system from excess stress…literally “lightening the load of life!”
Be well, be strong,
