Sports and covid crises

Running
Running

In India, we are facing a very challenging time. We are under a strict lockdown, and everyday covid numbers in India are increasing; as we speak, we are over 400,000 per day. Covid positive patients cannot find oxygen beds, medicines, and CT scans, especially in the rural areas, Grimm, and many people are losing their loved ones.

 

In this situation at Mann Deshi Champions, we had provided home delivery nutritious food to our athletes and zoom sessions on sports and education.

 

A conditioning routine can help athletes boost and maintain immunity, minimize the effects of detraining, facilitate the return to a routine, and improve tactical knowledge. In addition, attention to athletes' mental health and dietary habits is needed in this period of lockdown. Strength and conditioning professionals, teams, and athletes who are able to adopt these measures will experience less difficulty when returning to their normal training and competition routines.
