Given the current global climate, strengthening the immune system is a priority for many people. The truth is that immunity depends on many factors. Some have it under control, others don’t. But exercise plays a role in immunity. So it’s helpful to understand how your exercise efforts might be affecting your ability to fight infections. Here the experts explain when training HELPS and when it hurts, and how to exercise safely if immunity is a problem.

HOW EXERCISE HELPS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

“Exercise, both cardiovascular and strength training, helps to strengthen the immune system and counteract the effects of Immune senescence, the progressive deterioration of the immune system,” explains Tom Holland, exercise physiologist, sports nutritionist and author of “The Micro Workout Plan.”

But how exactly does this work? In the long term, exercise mobilizes T cells, a type of white blood cell that protects the body against infections, Holland explains. “This is true for moderate and high intensity cardiovascular exercise,” he adds.

The evidence also suggests that obesity can cause immunosuppression and increased susceptibility to the issue, says Aaron Brown, certified personal trainer and research associate at Ultimate Performance. But research has shown that regular workouts can help reverse some of these effects, even without weight loss. It is therefore likely that anyone’s immune system can benefit from a little exercise, regardless of their weight.

Although positive changes induced by exercise have been observed at the cellular level, there is also strong epidemiological evidence or evidence observed at the population level that exercise is a good thing for our immune system.

“As human beings, our susceptibility to issue follows a J-shaped curve,” says Todd Buckingham, M.D., exercise physiologist at the Mary Free Bed Sports Rehabilitation Performance Lab. This means that people who have no (or very little) body activity are at moderate risk of developing an upper respiratory tract infection, just as they would classify recent times. People with moderate body activity have a low risk of developing an upper respiratory tract infection, about 40% less than people with little/no activity, Buckingham explains.

IN SOME matters, EXERCISE CAN HURT

The end of the J-curve described above concerns people with “exhausting” body activity. For these people, the risk of upper respiratory tract infection is high — about 50% higher than for people with low body activity, Buckingham says. “Since recent times is a respiratory issue, it is especially important that athletes (and non-athletes) pay attention to it now.”

Holland agrees, noting that a real high-intensity and particularly long-lasting Cardio workout-what marathon runners and Ironman triathletes practice during training – can have a detrimental effect on the immune system. “These athletes often have a mild cold or sore throat during their rejuvenation, and this is often attributed to the prolonged training sessions and the volume of training,” he adds.

This could be partly due to something known as the Hormesis effect. “The theory of Hormesis suggests that there is an appropriate dose of Stress to which our Physiology adapts in the medium and long term to protect us from future stress strikes,” says Brown. “Too little stress and we won’t adapt and walk away from training; Too much Stress related to training and we cannot recover, get health-issue, suffer and even see our performance suffer as a result. “So there are a number of “just enough” exercises, and we don’t want to go too far above or below.

There is also evidence that one-on-one intense workouts suppress the immune system, Brown says. “The secretion of immune cells called lymphocytes is downregulated and other hormones and protein messengers in our body are apparently negatively affected. “IN the 80s and 90s, it was thought that this temporary suppression of the immune system created a window of opportunity for increased susceptibility to issues,” he says.

However, recent research suggests that this may not be the matter. Instead of lymphocytes being downregulated, it may simply be that they have moved places in the lungs, for example, to prepare for an infection and prepare to “fight” in the face of an infection, notes Tracey Evans, PhD, science journalist and medical researcher. But this research is nascent, so it is difficult to make recommendations based on it.

Be that as it may, it is unlikely that most people will have to worry if they train too intensively. Despite the popularity of at-home HIIT programs, the vast majority of people don’t really work out at these higher intensities, Holland says. “That being said, for those who are pushing their cardiovascular training into the anaerobic “Red Zone”, it is best to hold back for a few weeks while continuing to train during these unique periods.”

HOW TO EXERCISE IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT IMMUNITY

IF YOU ARE NOT WORKING OUT, NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO START

“Since many state governments issue a stay-at-home order, we have the opportunity to spend more time exercising,” Buckingham said. “Don’t worry about the closure of gyms, swimming pools and fitness centers. Just look around and everything can be used for exercise.”

IF YOU’RE ALREADY WORKING OUT, TAKE IT EASY

“Now is the time to err on the side of caution,” says Holland. If in doubt, he advises making it lighter and focusing on cardiovascular endurance — but not too much. LISS workouts are a great Option, he adds.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN DOING INTENSE EXERCISE, REDUCE THE INTENSITY

Buckingham agrees, noting that if you train regularly and push the limits daily, now is the time to stop your training. “With all the races and events postponed or canceled until May (and maybe even beyond), there is currently no need to train extremely hard and dig your immune system into a hole. Continue your training routine, but decrease the intensity “, he advises.
