This is an excellent tutorial on lifting.

The difference between lifting heavy or light objects.

Do you keep your back healthy?
One of the biggest causes of back injury is lifting objects incorrectly.

So, the BIG question is:
HOW TO LIFT A LIGHT / HEAVY OBJECT SAFELY?

- What is the recommended way to lift heavy weights?
- What is the difference between lifting a light object with a healthy back compared to lifting it with a spinal pathology?
- What about light objects and forward bending?
- What about bending forward with a pathological spinal condition?

Watch this important video and get answers to all the questions above!

Important note:
Bending forward is not a contraindication in our daily life.
It is a very important movement to be kept and maintained.

On many occasions in life, we can (and should) use segmental rounded bending (in healthy back cases) such as picking a light object off the ground etc.
In many daily activities that are not involved with high or vertical pressure - rounding the spine comes naturally.

SUMMARY:
- For lifting medium to heavy-weight keep your back straight.
- For a lightweight object, we can (and should) use segmental rounded bending.
- In a pathological spinal condition, it is recommended to maintain a straight back.

Health Clubs Are Not Spreading COVID-19, Study Finds

A study of more than 49.4 million visits to U.S. gyms over three months found a COVID-19 positive rate that was more than 500 times less than the current estimated U.S. national average.
Of more than 49.4 million health club visits over three months, 0.0023 percent tested positive for COVID-19, which is more than 500 times less than the current estimated U.S. national average, according to a study by MXM, a technology and knowledge transfer company specializing in member tracking within the fitness industry.

The study tracked member check-in data from May 1-Aug. 6 at 2,873 U.S. health clubs and studios compared to self-reported infection rates. Participating clubs included Anytime Fitness, Life Time, Planet Fitness and Orangetheory.

"As recently as a few months ago, the data correlating fitness facility visits and mitigating risk was practically nonexistent," MXM CEO Blair McHaney said in a media release. " All that's changed – and for the better. It's become abundantly clear that the safety measures gyms, sports clubs and boutique fitness centers have in place are not only incredibly effective at keeping their membership safe but also curbing any potential spread of COVID-19 during a time when we all need access to exercise facilities to stay healthy."

MXM, along with IHRSA, invited all health and fitness clubs in the United States to participate in the long-form study. Over the course of the study, fitness centers provided their total check-ins and number of locations across all states in which they have a presence as well as self-reported the total number of positive COVID-19 cases documented between employees and members who have been in the club. MXM previously conducted a study surrounding the lack of concentrated outbreaks in fitness facilities with affirming results just last month.

"The check-in data proves that health clubs, when following strict cleaning and safety protocols, are safe," Brent Darden, IHRSA interim president and CEO, said in the release. "At IHRSA, we have a responsibility to educate and inform people that they should feel comfortable and confident going into fitness facilities throughout the country right now. The data shows that, with proper sanitization protocols in place, people can safely return to their workout routines. Working out has never been more important to help boost immunity and improve mental health. It's time to acknowledge that gyms are safe."

Several studies have shown that physical activity plays a role in not only maintaining a healthy immune system but also in reducing COVID-19 risk factors such as obesity, heart disease, lung disease and diabetes. In the United States, 42.4 percent of adults and 18.5 percent of children and adolescents are considered obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Physical fitness has long-term mental health benefits as well, including reducing the risk of stress and depression. One in five Americans experience mental health illness, and people with mental illness have 40 percent higher risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases than the general population.

"Fitness centers are needed now more than ever to help us stay active and maintain a healthy immune system," Robert Sallis, M.D. with Kaiser Permanente, said in the release. "COVID-19 risk factors haven't changed since the pandemic began—obesity, heart disease, lung disease and diabetes put you at much higher risk for both short- and long-term complications. It's imperative that we all make real change now to stay healthy given that exercise is an essential part of life."

Lesson: Consistency, Not Compensation from Precision Nutrition
You can't outrun a poor diet, so start with a solid foundation of smart eating choices.
What's the difference?
Consistency is present-focused and forgiving.
It means focusing on your personal daily plan of small actions. And, it also means knowing that you won't always meet the plan. In those times, focusing on consistency means being strong on forgiveness.

Focusing on consistency, you can get restarted as soon as possible. You can be back on-plan immediately, in this moment, without any moral regrets and compensation for whatever happened in the past. With a focus on consistency, you're always starting with a clean slate.

Compensation is backward-focused and regretful.
It means acting out of regret or dissatisfaction. Rather than operating from a clean slate, compensation is a way to "make-up for" or "undo" a past choice. The actions often show-up as hasty, frantic, or impulsive.

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

You can't out-train a poor diet.
One of the most obvious places to look for compensation is in how you exercise.

Why do you exercise?
In the long run, using exercise as a way to "burn calories", "absolve indulgences", or "make up for mistakes" is a plan that leads to defeat.

It will probably be fraught with chronic hunger and exhaustion. Those are two entirely unnecessary features of a sustainable lifestyle.

Compensation in exercise comes with deep emotional costs. An extremist mindset on exercise turns movement into a chore and eating into a sin. If that's not fun or enjoyable to you, there are other options.

Consistency is in successfully dialing down.
Focusing on consistency means looking for ways to just do something every day.
For instance, your practice might be:

Get at least some movement today, even if that's 5 minutes.
Eat at least one fruit or vegetable today.
Drink a big glass of water when I wake up.
Eat a little bit more slowly or mindfully.
Have a smaller portion of dessert, or skip it every other day.
These actions might seem small and unambitious, but that's exactly why they get done.

Things that get done, over and over, add up.

They also become a seamless part of your routine, so they become easier and more automatic. Over time, these repeated practices become part of who you are, rather than a daily struggle against unbearable expectations. (Who set these expectations, anyway?)

Small actions, done consistently, lead to huge and lasting results.

Alternatively, if you're in the cycle of compensating or swinging wildly between all or nothing, you'll probably experience a lot more effort for even less payoff.

Consistency is in the process.
For whatever outcome you're after, the process is the everyday moments that you have to live through for it. If you're feeling pressured, exhausted, or agonized throughout the process, is the outcome that you're striving for worth that lifestyle?

Help yourself get things done, consistently.
Anticipate. Prepare. Strategize.
When you're done reading this, go look at your calendar.

What's coming up in the next while?
How can you help yourself stay on track?
What do you need to do today... and tomorrow... and the next few days... to help yourself make small but wise choices, consistently?

When thinking about hydration during hot weather, don't forget that many fruits and veggies are primarily water too- so eat that watermelon with abandon, enjoy those crunchy carrot and celery sticks, flavor your water with cucumber slices or berries and aim for one extra glass of clear liquids a day. And of course- if you need a place to escape the heat- we are here for you!!

As I am sure you are all aware, the State of Oregon is still under a stay at home mandate requiring Fitness Over 50 to remain closed. While we were hoping to reopen at the beginning of April, it now looks like we will at least be closed through the end of this week. We will continue to monitor this week by week as things change, and will reopen as soon as is safely possible. We will continue to have online classes and social meetings to help you all stay active and connected. If you know of other FOF members who are not on our email distribution list but want to stay up to date with our announcements and online content, please have them contact Nate at [email protected]

These are certainly unique and unnerving times for all of us. As a small, local business, FOF is doing its best to ride this out by using all resources available and making any efforts we can to ensure we will get back up and running for our members as quickly and safely as possible.

We have been amazed at the number of members who have contacted us regarding how they can help FOF during this financially stressful period. Thank you SO MUCH to all who have donated or asked to have their automatic monthly payments continue throughout this period. Your generosity, support, and compassion for Fitness Over 50 and your fellow members is truly humbling. For those have been inquiring about how to help financially please email Nate for more details in ways to help out.

Thanks to everyone who has shown such generosity and concern for the successful future of Fitness Over 50, INC and our wellness community. We will get through this and continue to provide the dedicated, hands on service you all deserve!

Good Morning FOF Community! Below is the schedule of online offerings from Fitness Over 50 for the upcoming week. If you are not on our Email Distribution List, please email [email protected] to get on the list and get access to online content. We had over 75 people tune in to our live stream exercise class on Friday. Don't miss out on a chance to stay active and interact with your peers!

Good Afternoon FOF Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the closing of Fitness Over 50 for the next two weeks, effective immediately. Our intention is to re-open at the beginning of April. Of course, we will be in communication throughout the next two weeks with updates and information.

While part of our decision was based on recommendations from the federal and state government, our main driver in this decision was the health and safety of our members. With so little information out there regarding the actual prevalence of the virus, the risk of staying open and potentially causing harm to one (or many) of our members was too great for us to continue at this point.

We truly do appreciate all of our members who recognized the importance of staying healthy, whether by continuing to attend the gym or simply expressing their regret over not being able to attend due to their concerns over their individual health and the health of their friends, family, and the community.

We encourage you all to please stay active, whether it be walking outside, performing exercises like sit to stands, toe raises, pushups off of a counter, using hand weights or resistance bands, etc. It will be critical for you to keep moving while this whole mess is sorted out. If you email Nate with questions on what can be done at home he will respond as soon as possible! The FOF parking lot is a great place to park and take advantage of regular walks on the path alongside Country Club Dr. while still maintaining distance from others. We know of folks who plan on using it regularly throughout the next two weeks, primarily in the mid-morning hours.

Please stay in touch whether via email or phone and let us know how you are doing and what tools you are using to stay healthy during the next couple weeks. We are happy to pass on tips to other members through our email distribution chain as a way to keep our FOF community informed and connected.

Lastly, please remember how important regular physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and vocational health and wellness are to combating disease and sickness. It is our promise to you that we will do what whatever we can to get through this rough stretch financially and return to offer you programming that encompasses all of the aspects of wellness and helps you live longer, happier, and healthy lives. Your wellness membership is an investment in your health and future and we will continue to offer as many services and health benefits at the lowest cost possible. And when we are able to re-open, if you have an insurance plan that pays for your membership, take advantage of it! It truly is free medicine. Getting at least three days of exercise per week will go a long way to keeping you healthy through a future situation like this.

Until we have more information on the virus, please consider how your actions will affect yourself and others, and most importantly, STAY HEALTHY!
