Exercise and Asthma

Struggle with asthma? Did you know that most people who have asthma avoid exercise because of being scared of having an attack or making the asthma worse? I am here to tell you that exercising with asthma is totally safe (assuming you have your “puffer” with you at all times in case of an episode!) and encouraged! Regular aerobic exercise between 60-80% of HRR has been shown to decrease incidents of asthma attack.⠀

It is important to make sure you are going to a gym with great air circulation (aka some A/C), avoiding cold, dry air, or non-air circulating environment. It is also important to spend extra time warming up and cooling down. It is also important to understand that high intensity exercise and long duration/continuous activity trigger more asthmatic events than moderate intensity and “stop and go” exercise.

Health vs Fitness

Todays blog post literally copy and pasting off an old lecture so y’all don’t think I’m nuts when I tell you that health and fitness are NOT the same thing.⠀

-“Health and wellness are factors of disease free living with positive controls over physiological measures.”⠀
-“Fitness is defined by quantifiable measures of physical components broken down into health and performance related components.”⠀

“A person can be healthy, but not fit in the same way a person can score well in fitness testing and not be as healthy as a person with lower scores in the same test.”
