Indoor workouts spiked by 40% in India since January 2020

Indoor workouts in India have increased by 40% since January 2020

You can’t go out and you definitely can’t go to the gym. Most householders start working outside the home to stay fit. Working daily helps in creating routines and also helps in boosting immunity and people are engaged in work and household chores.

According to Garmin Connect data, between January and March 2020, there was an overall 15.2% drop in activity count for outdoor sessions, with golfing, hiking, trail running, and activity counts for sports such as 87.6%, 34.9%, 29.2%. Was seen And 18.8% respectively.

In comparison, indoor activities such as floor climbing, yoga, Pilates, and indoor cardio workouts showed an overall increase of 38.5% between January and March.

In addition to doing workouts, it is also important to keep a constant check on a person’s physical data to actively monitor physical health and well-being. The World Health Organization’s “Clinical Management of Severe Acute Infections (SARI) When COVID-19 Disease has Suspected” interim guidance highlights the importance of health monitoring data – one of the clinical syndromes is severe pneumonia where the patient is fever or suspected Experience respiratory infections. , Respiratory rate of more than 30 breaths/minute; Severe respiratory distress; Or SpO2 of less than 93% on room air.

Garmin India has identified five key health indicators to help users track and manage their health profile. Users can refer to the data of their Garmin smartwatch along with five health indicators to identify any changes.

These 5 health indicators are:

Heart rate

It is generally believed that when the body temperature rises abnormally, the heart rate will increase; Similarly, when the body temperature falls, the heart rate and the strength of the heart contraction will decrease accordingly.

People with a more resting heart rate may indicate a higher risk of developing heart diseases. Regular exercise reduces the body’s sympathetic nervous activity, which reduces resting heart rate, improves cardiac performance and results in more flexible neuromodulation.

Respiratory rate

The normal respiratory rate of a healthy adult is 12 – 20 breaths per minute (brpm). Low respiratory rate is a common sign of good health. Even when exercising, people with better physical fitness levels have lower respiratory rates.

There are several breathing techniques that can help you manage your stress levels, relax and improve your concentration and sleep quality. Engaging in daily breathing exercises will help reduce anxiety and stress and keep health on track.

Blood oxygen saturation

Blood oxygen saturation is closely related to lung health. Blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) refers to the concentration of oxygen in human blood, the major index for measuring health.

The ideal Spo2 level should be between 95–100%. A figure of less than 90% is considered very low, however, this figure may vary with individual physical differences. For example, some people may feel discomfort at high altitudes due to decreased levels of Spo2.

Monitoring how your body reacts and varies with different blood oxygen saturation levels in different states can help you understand your body better.

Sleep monitor

Quality sleep is important for maintaining healthy body functions. When people fall asleep, they experience rapid eye movements and multiple cycles of non-rapid eye movement. The non-rapid eye motion phase can be further divided into deep and light sleep.

During the state of deep sleep, the body will begin to repair, build bones, develop muscles and enhance the immune system. Under normal circumstances, a healthy adult will get about 15–25% of deep sleep each night.

However, this figure varies between individuals. Garmin’s sleep monitoring function records blood oxygen saturation levels and the number of times you toss and overnight so that you can closely monitor the quality of your sleep.

Stress monitoring

The tensor is a condition, the more we will need to stabilize our physical and mental state. When we are stuck in extremely stressful situations for a long time, coping with stress can affect our physical and mental health and these reactions can be devastating to our health over time.

Garmin’s stress detection functions use heart rate variability (HRV) to estimate body stress levels. Training, physical activities, sleep position, mental state and other daily activities will affect your stress levels.

Garmin’s stress monitoring function measures stress levels from 0 to 100; 0–25 suggests a low-stress level, 24–50 indicates a moderate stress level, and 51– 765 and indicated7–100 indicate high and extremely high-stress levels, respectively. This function will enable you to monitor your daily stress levels.
