Exercise your Immune System!

People-Working-Out-Dogs.jpg

Exercise helps strengthen the immune system.  This is imperative while you’re in isolation for a healthy physical and mental well-being.

How exercise helps the immune system:

  • Physical activity may help flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. This may reduce your chance of getting a cold, flu, or other illness.
  • Exercise causes change in antibodies and white blood cells (WBC). WBCs are the body’s immune system cells that fight disease. These antibodies or WBCs circulate more rapidly, so they could detect illnesses earlier than they might have before.
  • The brief rise in body temperature during and right after exercise may prevent bacteria from growing. This temperature rise may help the body fight infection better. (This is similar to what happens when you have a fever.)
  • Exercise slows down the release of stress hormones. Some stress increases the chance of illness. Lower stress hormones may protect against illness.

The first step in creating a workable exercise program is setting a concrete schedule.  This can happen by scheduling 3-5 workouts per week.  This can also mean writing down and committing your workout to paper.  Start on Sunday and schedule your weeks workouts,

For example:  Monday – Zoom Jiu-Jitsu, Tuesday Zoom Jiu-Jitsu, Wednesday Hike or Bike, Thursday Zoom Jiu-Jitsu, Friday Conditioning / Stretch, Saturday Hike or Bike, Sat / Sun Stretch

By committing it to paper you’re more apt to follow your schedule.  Versus flying by the seat of your pants with no real commitment.  After every workout you should take some quick notes.

For example:  Tuesday May 5th:  Went for a 4 mile hike followed by conditioning and light stretch.  Body feels good – need to spend more time stretching.

By taking notes you can document your training and have some personal follow through.    This strengthens your commitment and gives you a road map to follow.  Your time in quarantine should be a time os growth and development – not loss.

Go schedule your workouts – and we will see you in class!

P.S.  Remember we now offer Zoom workouts every day!  Classes combine technique with tons of great conditioning.  Don’t miss this stellar opportunity.

Stay connected…Time to TRAIN!

How-to-Stay-Connected-During-Social-Distancing-1024x682

As we all navigate these unforeseen waters we learn to adapt and overcome.  Don’t look at these as “challenges” but rather opportunities for something better.  We have this great technology which allows us all to continue training and communicating.  It’s not perfect… but it works.  We have tons of great content on our YouTube channel and Zoom classes to help everyone stay connected.  In this time of isolation… connection is imperative.  We offer classes Tues. / Thurs. / Sat. for adults at 12:00 PM plus evening classes every night.  We’ve made zoom logins even easier by removing the passcode and allowing an easier sign in.

Tuesday / Thursday classes are currently being run by purple belt Blake.  (use his meeting ID 810-364-070

All evening (kids and adults) and Saturday classes are run by Professor Mike – simply use the Meeting ID: 912-531-7772

If you haven’t logged into a Zoom class – now’s the time!  You’ll get a great workout modified for one person with little space.  You don’t even need mats!

Also be sure to checkout our YouTube channels for more great content, class workouts and curriculum!
