Tuesday, January 25, 2022
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

COVID-19 has been characterized by a long list of symptoms of varying severity and the potential for said symptoms to linger indefinitely. While exercise has been widely used to bolster one’s health across various conditions, there has understandably been less clarity regarding its application across individuals recovering from a COVID-19 infection. While many individuals are able to quickly return to performing large volumes of activity, a subgroup continues to experience persistent fatigue, breathlessness, brain fog and exercise malaise, seemingly eliminating the possibility of returning to or adopting an active lifestyle. Although there is still much to learn about effectively individualizing the exercise prescription, this webinar will review current strategies and considerations for prescribing exercise to those in the post COVID-19-infection phase.
- Understand how to characterize the severity of post COVID-19-infection symptoms.
- Have an understanding of tests that can be used to identify long-COVID-19 symptoms.
- Understand the considerations for developing an exercise prescription relative to the individual’s COVID-19 infection severity.
- Have an understanding of how to guide an individual with severe long-COVID-19 symptoms through pacing.
