Can you workout Post getting covid vaccination? if this question has come to your head then you are among all the other people who got vaccination and are in a state of confusion whether to head towards gym or sit at home and take rest.
We have reached the point where the younger generation Is eligible for taking covid-19 vaccine. Though vaccines are great protection against the deadly Coronavirus. We might be wondering that, how the vaccine will affect our day to day lives.
There are around three vaccines which are authorized for emergency use and effective fighting the coronavirus. Moderna Is 94% effective, Pfizer which is 95 % defective And Johnson and Johnson which is around 70% effective on the human body.
There is no rule that one shouldn’t go to the gym and exercise post vaccination.
But as your body has taken at Jab just recently. So one cannot tell how can individuals’ body would respond to the vaccine.
Common side effects of the covid vaccination:
Some of the common side effects of the vaccine include Muscle pain, redness, swelling in the arm, Chills, fever, nausea and headache. So, if your body has any of the side effects. Then there is no need to worry about it . It is a way in which your body is saying that Your immune system is responding to the vaccine.
So, is it ok to hit the gym in such a condition? I would prefer to take a rest for a day or two and wait till my body recovers from the side effects of the vaccine.
Though it is OK to go to the gym, but I would advise you to avoid HIIT, cardio , strength training for the initial few days after the vaccine. Instead of going to the gym you can go for a walk or do Brisk walking.
I am advising you to avoid the above Trainings. Because it is impossible even for a doctor to let you know that how your body would respond to the covid vaccine. Taking painkillers or Ibuprofen To lessen the side effects of the vaccine will not make you feel better. You have to consult your family doctor before taking such pills.
A time when you feels good about your body post vaccination you can proceed going to the gym.
