Since the original publication of the article, What We Know About Returning to Exercise After COVID-19, new guidelines have been released with regards to safely returning to exercise after recovering from COVID-19.
Kayla @ Fitness Blender, our amazingly talented Doctor of Physical Therapy, walks through the new guidelines in our updated article. The basics include:
➣ During the first few days of being symptom-free, practice small modifications in your daily activities that help reintroduce movement (like carrying a load of laundry up the stairs).
➣ Refrain from exercise until you are symptom-free for at least seven days and then gradually follow four phases (see full article).
➣ You should remain in each phase for at least seven days and only progress once the activity load becomes easy.
