Hospital Associated Deconditioning: Resistance Isn’t Futile!

Patient data points to physical therapy as a highly effective mechanism for combatting HAD. Undertaking a program of early and vigorous exercise during a patient’s stay is perhaps the best antidote to the pernicious deconditioning effects of prolonged hospitalization. Of particular interest is the finding that supervised high-intensity exercise is a highly beneficial addition to a patient’s physical therapy protocol, when fending off HAD.

The Gift of Running | Week 3

This was a tough week.  I tried to move to 55% body weight, but I wasn’t ready.  In my usual fashion, I want to push it along to lower weights faster, but I have to remember to be patient and allow my body the time it needs to acclimate to the higher weights.
