Exercise and sports are actions that increase our quality of life, rest our souls and are known to benefit human health. They are often neglected, not taken seriously, not an unshakable element in our daily schedule.
We say ‘I wish’, but it’s too late!
Yet there is always an opportunity to 'start somewhere'.
Obesity is a disease of the new age, and bariatric surgery is one of the important solutions for this. However, "balanced diet and exercise" remains the golden key for a healthy life.
Bariatric surgery is an effective treatment method in cases where diet and exercise alone do not give effective results in the treatment of obesity, especially if there are different health problems.
But it is not an "end".
“Exercise” is on the agenda again.
Physical activity is very important for long-term and permanent weight control. Another important factor is the individual-specific selection of the exercise.
Do not forget, as regular sports, fitness and exercise in European terms progress, your muscle mass will increase, your body will tighten and your metabolic rate will increase. It is necessary to gradually increase the intensity or length of fitness activities. Your surgeon or expert sports trainer may have specific recommendations for you in this regard.
How much exercise should i do?
It can be started with 150 minutes a week with brisk walking, jogging, swimming or working with exercise equipment.
We would like to remind you that each body has a very different capacity to absorb exercises.
Someone else's work schedule may not work for you!
Please make your exercise program in consultation with a conscious trainer and doctor.
Do not force yourself without adequate conditioning and warming.
How soon can I exercise after surgery?
Your doctor will definitely guide you in this direction.
Walking is the most important and fundamental exercise and is often recommended while you are still in the hospital.
As you recover, you will also be asked to increase your exercise duration and intensity.
For exercises that create tension in the abdomen after surgery, it is important to wait until you get approval from your doctor.
What kind of exercise should I do?
Routine aerobic, resistance and flexibility exercises are recommended for best results other than walking.
Exercises such as swimming or water aerobics will also be extremely beneficial within your means.
Videos for home workouts are also a great option if you don't have access to a gym near you.
