At the Table:
Research of the Week
I love research.
So much in fact, that I love to discuss it....read it while drinking my favorite coffee (Ethiopian this week),
and this week, bring research from other areas that I think will help us as climbers.
This week we discuss moving and the interrelationship between it and health yet again. Moderna vaccinations, and climbing chalk (again)
Let's start off with a bit of pep talking! Get those shoes and get to the gym as a recent study published April 13, 2021. in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Looking at the relationship between activity and COVID-19 symptoms, the study followed 48,440 adult patients and compared their health to their activity level in regards to covidseverity. found that physical inactivity is associated with a higher risk for severe COVID-19 outcomes.
The paper covered cases and client loads at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana, CA following clients from prior to infection (2018) and comparing activity levels with symptom severity through 2020 (Jan-Oct).
