A study in the Journal for Infectious Diseases in Nov 2009 has tested mice with infecting them with H1N1 and seeing how they fared based on their exercise habits before and during the infection. They proved that the ones that were exercising prior to being infected showed far less symptoms and were able to fight it better.
They also proved that the ones that were exercising for a long time before they were infected showed even stronger signs of recovery and fighting the disease.
These results are a good excuse for staying healthy for the long term, So get at it!
What I’m trying to get out here, is to exercise friends! Your health will thank you, and it’ll increase your chances of fighting the flu this year, and every year to come. Start these good habits and you’re life will thank you later.
