How we can stay physically active at home; Benefits of home-based exercises
In a time when social distancing, self-isolation and uncertainty has taken control of our daily lives, ECU’s researchers provide some comfort and practical advice on how to manage life through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join Professor Ken Nosaka, Director of Exercise and Sports Science, School of Medical and Health Sciences for a discussion on “How we can stay physically active at home; Benefits of home-based exercises.”
In this short webinar, they will discuss how a lack of regular exercise leads to reduced muscle strength, coordination, balance, flexibility and mobility, and increases the risk of many chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, stroke and dementia. Professor Nosaka will explain why regular exercise is so important and provide some tips on what we could do at home during the COVID-19 crisis to achieve the recommendations of 30 minutes of exercise for adults and 60 minutes for children each day.
