If you are obese, walk, if you have arthritis… Which exercise is right for me?


There are separate exercises for each individual according to the condition of the body and the disease. Due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), it is difficult to exercise freely.

However, if you exercise indoors or outdoors while keeping the precautions for COVID-19, your immunity will improve and it will be of great help in defeating Corona 19. Exercise should be well chosen according to your physical condition.

If you choose it well, it can become a medicine, but if you choose the wrong one, exercise can get sick or progress. In this regard, based on data such as’Medical News Today.com’, I will look into the exercise that suits me that varies depending on the state of the body.

1. Walking

If you are the elderly, obese, people with osteoporosis, or beginners in exercise, walking is good. It is also suitable for people with frequent numbness due to poor blood circulation. Upper body obesity falls well when walking or running.

2. Cycling

It is good for people with weak physical strength or poor joints. If you have back pain (low back pain), you can ride an indoor bike. The weight loss effect is lower than that of walking and running.

3. Running

Good for young people. If you are gaining a lot of weight, it can be a strain on your ankles. It is good for preventing osteoporosis, but it is dangerous if you are currently suffering from osteoporosis and should be avoided.

4. Climbing

Weak joints or poor stamina and muscle strength can cause pain or injury. If the inclination is more than 30%, it is good to start with a gentle incline because it puts a burden on the knees and joints. In particular, it’s best to refrain from being an expert in the cold and freezing winter months.

5. Swimming

Good for people with poor cardiopulmonary function or degenerative arthritis. In particular, freestyle, backstroke, and splashing motions are good, and butterfly or balance is avoided. If you have frozen shoulders, exercise your arms in warm water.

If your blood pressure is high, walking is better than swimming. In particular, as it is difficult to use the swimming pool due to social quarantine measures due to Corona 19, you can do walking exercises and start when the swimming pool is available.

6. Strength training

If you have little muscle mass or if your muscles are not symmetrical, you should do strength training. It’s best to start with a light weight at first.
