Better Ways To Exercise After Weight Loss Surgery

Physical exercise is one essential element in improving the effectiveness of weight reduction surgery. Yet studies indicate that almost 80 per cent of gastric lap-band, bariatric gastric bypass, and gastric sleeve patients neglect to meet the recommended 150 minutes each week for physical activity. People with severe obesity are markedly sedentary in comparison to people of normal weight given that they do not have the flexibility or respiratory convenience of exercise.

Morbidly overweight people often have locomotive handicaps and muscle quality deterioration that truly makes aerobic exercise impossible. There are several fitness centers which are ready to support the morbidly obese on their path to fitness as a ‘make it burn’ and ‘work it off’ trunk camp fitness philosophy prevails. Acutely overweight people are embarrassed and uncomfortable in a gym setting where they feel judged or scorned by people who are fitter and at a healthy weight. There are different types of weight loss surgery available for you in the medical science.

The study finds that quick powerful bursts of PRT exercise combined with direct supervision of an exercise physiotherapist may help address the initial bio-mechanical and psychological problems presented by these people.

A report published in Bariatric Times May 2010 by Wollner, Adair, Jones and Blackburn indicates that starting a PRT (Progressive Resistance Training) exercise program prior to weight loss surgery may provide a feasible exercise choice for obese patients seeking weight loss and improved health with weight loss surgery. The repetitive movements and extended bouts of aerobic exercise training might not be possible for this patient.
