STRENGHTEN YOUR BODY WITH PERSONAL TRAINING
Resistance exercise has gained popularity over the last decade. With the help of weights, elastic bands or machines you’ll improve your muscle strength and tone which therefore protects your joints from injury. But what if you are dealing with a medical condition in your joints? Is it still advisable and relevant for you to explore resistance training?
Magnus Ringberg, MSc Sport Science, BSc Physiotherapist and well-known Yogaground friend decided to test this as part of his master science thesis. He set up a training program for a group of individuals diagnosed with knee Osteoarthritis. This exercise program varied in length, intensity, volume and frequency, to look at his hypothesis from all angles. Participants received anywhere between 1 and 7 exercises, intensity of which varied, as did the numbers of sets and reps. Outcome was measured through self-rated pain, function and capacity in physical function by the test group.
The conclusion was clear; strength or resistance training, reduces pain, and improves the functioning of the joint.
Join Magnus on Friday evening December 10, for his 360º Flow Super Session. Talking about moving those joints in all directions! It’s a great challenge to take your yoga a little further, evolving your practice.
